blogs and forums
Blogs - Read the insights of both experienced and first year teachers in these blogs.
There is a "tool" that is built in to most blogging software that changes the way we receive and process the information we get from the Internet. This is what's known as RSS. This code, usually referred to as a "feed" (as in "news feed"), makes it possible for readers to "subscribe" to the content that is created on a particular Weblog so they no longer have to visit the blog itself to get it.  As is true with traditional syndication, the content comes to you instead of you going to it.  Check this video out - RSS in Plain English (3:42) Funny & easy to understand.
