I subscribe to both feedly and Inoreader because I like variety. I typically subscribe to feeds with a relatively low amount of followers to reduce the chances that I will repeat a share of one of my classmates (but if we all have that same thinking, it sort of defeats the purpose, things have been good so far!). I have used feedly more as I find the layout more appealing. Before I add a feed to my selection, I check out some of their articles. If I feel that the articles/podcasts/videos are relevant, within my interests, or beneficial for others to read/listen to/watch then I choose to follow them.
As you can see, Cult of Pedagogy doesn’t necessarily have an immense following like some of its blogger counterparts, but the content is relatable to those in the Education field, specifically teachers. And the website provides so much more! Teachers can become more successful by learning about post-pandemic teaching, cultivating a culture that promotes critical thinking, how co-construction enhances success for students, and how to adapt the classroom to be more equitable.
As well, Larry Ferlazzo discusses how the web can promote more successful learning for students who are ESL/EFL/ELL, provides his readers with resources to assist in teaching students about a very important topic: race and racism, how to encourage a lifelong skill of curiosity and inquiry within students, and weekly resources for classroom instruction. Larry Ferlazzo does have more followers and that could be due to his many, many “Best” lists or “Must-Read” posts and could be more well known from his books, offering numerous and up to date resources around many topics such as: Best Online Learning Games 3021, Must-Read Articles On School Openings, or Best Videos For Educators in 2021 (even though we’re not even half way through the year - but we won’t criticize him on that 😝).
Wish me luck in finding many more interesting articles to share!
