Jeff Lund's jing about utilizing Facebook/wordpress and youtube to link work.
Zach, well done. clear and to the point. I was not familiar with Google Docs and I like the idea of having a "network folders" for my students on the internet and not just at school since we all know how much of our work we take home. I am guessing this is just for digital assignments? Do you have all your assignments/papers completed digitally or do you have a very quick scanner that you use?
Thanks for sharing google reader. I had seen it on the drop down bar, but was not aware of what it could do. Not too sure about the "diet" part of this lesson. I always thought diet meant to cut down, but I find myself adding more and more with every person's lesson that I check out. Oh my!

My information diet input management stratgies are elementary but work for me at this point. It is the quality output that I need to improve on! It is easy to get caught up in the input.
I enjoyed your jing video regarding Google Reader. I just started a google reader account and it seems like I now spend more time than I did before because now all my blogs are in one handy spot! So much for info diet!

Here is the link to my Jing. The info-diet outputs I discuss are all for my school library: a web page, blog, and organizational Facebook page. The info-diet input I discuss is Google.
Here is my very elementary Jing regarding my social media input and output.
A little over 3 minutes (sorry!) but I discuss facebook, a couple of news sites, goodreads.com, and turnitin.com. Lesson 6 Info Diet - Lea Bouton
Here is my Jing video about using Google Bookmarks as a tool to organize information. I use Google Reader and Facebook quite a bit as well, but thought this would be a different tool to explore.
