Where do I get my ideas from?

All too often people ask me, "How do you know so much about..." or "Where do you get your ideas from?" It's not that I am a walking Wikipedia page, but rather I have found certain places to go that help hone my interests and ideas that I think will be useful.  Here are a few of these that I have found to be the most useful to me.

Twitter

I do not use twitter to follow rock stars, musicians or models.  Rather, twitter is a great tool for teachers, students and classroom use.  There are some great twitter hashtags to follow to learn more about Google or different trends in education.  Here are just a few: 
"Google Now is an intelligent personal assistant developed by Google. Google Now is available within the GoogleSearch mobile application for Android and iOS, as well as the Google Chrome web browser on personal computers."  

Google Now helps me organize my day to day events, see when packages are being delivered as well as choosing news and analyzing my news reading data.  It narrows news articles and chooses those based on my interests and previous articles I have read. 

Facebook Groups

Groups are dedicated spaces where you can share updates, photos or documents and message other group members. You can also select one of three privacy options for each group you create. A blog is a regularly updated website or web page, typically one run by an individual or small group, that is written in an informal or conversational style.  There are so many great blogs available to reference! Here are just a few of my favorites!
