Lately, I’ve been experimenting with Feedly as a possible replacement for Google Reader. Like Google Reader, Feedly is a tool for organizing and following RSS feeds, and like the apps Zite and Flipboard, Feedly presents the articles in a snappy visual layout.

I think the novelty alone has helped me to catch up with some blogs and news on education, school libraries, technology (and some great TV and food sites that I wish I had more time to follow!) Here’s one post that I found while trying out the Feedly iPad app today: a quick list of recent and relevant research articles about school libraries, posted to the AASL Blog as part of a series from the AASL Research and Statistics Committee.
Three quick annotations of articles are featured on online learning, mentoring and collaborating, and circulation policies as they relate to reading. I love lists like this- which someone else has already selected and narrowed down for me!
Are you using Feedly? What do you think? And what are some of your favorite feeds to follow?
