One of the complaints often directed at blogging is that not everyone is a blogger – not everyone has the interest, time or the skills to write for others.
While glancing through Furl’s Popular List , I realized how effective it could be as a learning tool. Anyone can use Furl (it simply stores a copy of a webpage in your user folder, so pages aren’t lost or links broken). Making connections is a knowledge era skill. Imagine a group of 25 students subscribing to each others online topics of interest (Furl folders can be public or private)…gaining insight into what other classmates found interesting enough to keep.
Note to self: start a Furl pilot program in one subject specific courses like Psychology or Law.
