I am a recent Blogger and therefore have had to learn a really hard lesson. There is an interplay between the time it takes for my research and the time I can spend on the rest of my life which includes a full time job as well as a wife and a very demanding Shetland Sheepdog called Skye!
I have waded into the waters of the sea of information and am finding it difficult at times not to feel a bit overwhelmed by the sheer number of sites and brilliant blogs out there.
So I have become what my wife says I have always been in regards to our weekly food shop…. a one stop shopper! If the world were run by me then I would have just one place where I could go to access the world of information.
Yes, I know I can do a Google Search for any subject that interests me… but a search is quite a blunt instrument… it allows you to go and look at other sites… but are they sites worth looking at or are they just a waste of my time?
Imagine my delight therefore when I discovered Larry Ferlazzo’s wonderful site http://larryferlazzo.edublogs.org/ This is a site where Larry has taken the time to go and do all the searching around the web for me (where does he find the time) and then brings me his opinions about the best sites worth looking at.
Having just looked at his Blog entry on his 4ooth “Best Sites” posting I haven’t the time (or Larry’s energy) to go through them all.. excepting to say that, for those of us interested in the applications of technology to education, this site is a real gem.
If you, like me, feel that you haven’t the time to trawl the waters (I know… one minute I’m drowning in the sea, the next I’m rescued and joining a fishing trawler!) then give this site a go… it is highly recommended and will pay dividends in terms of time and energy… and therefore release me to go on one more walk with my ever anxious dog!
Thanks Larry and well done!
