When I started the blog, one of things I wanted to do down the road was find a simple way I could post interesting articles and blog posts I read on a daily basis on my site – not necessarily education related, just anything I happened to read and find thought-provoking, in hopes that just maybe, a few of my students (or anyone else who comes across my blog) might read something they don’t usually read. I knew that there would be some way to do this using RSS and furl or del.icio.us, I just wasn’t sure exactly how I could go about learning the programming necessary to do it.
So new feature over on the right. The first page, other than the pages that explained this process, was today’s NY Times column by Matt Miller, who was a high school student of my student teaching advisor. I can’t think of much more I would want as a teacher than to have a student become something like Matt.
