Google Reader

Let me start by saying, I LOVE GOOGLE! I have begun investigating my google account and found so many cool ways to organize myself. The latest, Google Reader. http://www.google.com/reader/view/?tab=my#overview-page . I have set it up and found the viewing option to be so useful.

When you view an update from any of your readers blogs, the reader automatically marks it as read. This feature allows me to view my blogs in a book or newspaper style, just simply read. No clicking, No checking read, just easy efficient reading.

Google has other uses I plan on trying, photo, calendar, etc. I hope to be as excited at these as I am about the reader.

Google has recently become one of my most useful tools. I route all of my emails (work and personal)to Gmail and use it to sort them. Picasa (the google pictures) is also easy to use. I am also starting to use Google documents to make my work more portable. I keep finding more things as well.

I like google reader but I've also used bloglines. I'm not sure which I like more. As for the other tools like calendar and such, I use an online office suite - zoho business - for those sort of things and I would like to see how it would work for a school or a group within a division. I think that it has as much, if not more potential for groups of teachers than Google. Give it a look!
