That whole “Small Pieces, Loosely Joined” thing is failing me right now. I will try to not go all gloom and doom about how the web is falling apart, but hey, exhibit A.
So, I’ve resorted to emailing, mostly. I see an article or tool I think a teacher might be interested in, I just email them. Is it time consuming? Kind of. But it’s very direct and this way, I know they’ve seen it. And, I think, It probably creates a better connection rather than just hoping they visit the web site. It’s a reminder that there are things that should be automated, and maybe things that shouldn’t be.
