Is it just me or does anyone else find life is getting harder to manage online?

 

Emails, Google docs, Twitter feeds, notifications, RSS and blog feeds....it goes on. It doesn’t help when you find 100+ ways to organize your life online. Apart from using the VLN as professional learning network, I really like Netvibes and have used this as a personal portal for RSS feeds as well as a public space.

    I am currently at the Microsoft Asia Pacific Innovative Teachers forum and have exposed to Microsoft Montage - which I had heard of before but never took the time to explore.  I previously thought it was a photo application (I suppose Montage implies this - that is my excuse anyway), however I have had time to explore it and view its strengths.  Montage pulls together a range of resources, twitter feeds, RSS feeds etc on your area of focus.

    This YouTube video puts it into a simple way

    I have just taken 5 minutes to put together my first ever Montage
    (please excuse the 'crude' nature if it - it was put together purely as a trial for me to see how easy - or not - it would come together) - on Digital Learning and found it simple to do and potentially quite a rich resource.

     I think that not only would this be great for teachers to collate information on their different interests - both personal and professional, but it could also be a great resource creator for students in the secondary setting.  It isn't a 'one stop shop' but I can see it being of considerable value.
