Here’s your weekly dose of FIVER FRIDAY, a list of what I've found useful or informational this week concerning education.
Way I view Twitter--
Many people access Twitter through their web browser, the official Twitter app, and TweetDeck. While these all get the job done, my favorite way to view and post tweets is the app Tweetbot. If you have an iPhone or iPad and don't mind spending some money on an app ($9.99), give Tweetbot a try.
Chrome Extension/iOS App I'm using--
Pocket is one of the most used apps on my iPhone; it's a way to save articles you can read later. It's also a wonderful Chrome Extension. I highly recommend downloading the app and Extension to both your phone and Chrome browser.
Website I'm using--
Many people ask what I use to send FIVER FRIDAY newsletters. The answer is Mail Chimp! I love Mail Chimp--it's easy to use and it has been very dependable. If you're an administrator or teacher, think about using Mail Chimp to send newsletters to parents and teachers.
Blog post I'm re-reading--
This post puts your lifespan in perspective. I can't help but re-read it and remember that every day matters. As educators, this is something we must be mindful of on a continual basis. (Caution: There's some bad language in the post.)
Quote I'm pondering--
“I prefer to be true to myself, even at the hazard of incurring the ridicule of others, rather than to be false, and to incur my own abhorrence.” ― Frederick Douglass
