A "Smart" addition to my PLN

posted Apr 9, 2012, 4:40 PM by ttepedino@allendalecolumbia.org

I am constantly looking for new and better ways to filter information in my PLN (Personal Learning Network). The other day, while browsing my PLN a blog post by Tom Whitby caught my eye. Tom mentioned a tool called SmartBrief and how it’s part of his daily routine. I had never heard of SmartBrief until I read his post. SmartBrief sends you customized daily emails containing links to articles from a wide range of industries based on your interests. SmartBrief was very easy to setup and use. The mobile app nicely organizes your briefs for easy reading online or offline. Check it out and let me know what you think. Thanks Tom!

Here are some images from the mobile app.
