Want to find out what is happening all over your state in regards to education? Don’t know where where to start? Here is a simple trick I have been using for a while that let’s me know exactly what is going in Texas. (Trust me, it works everywhere!) Use Google Alerts to do the hard work for you.!
Go to Google Alerts http://www.google.com/alerts
Enter a search query: You can use multiple words. In my case, I use “Texas” and “education”
Enter how often you want the query to run. I put “Once a Day”
Enter how many results you want to show up. I put “Only the Best results”
Enter your email address.
Then, starting tomorrow, you will start getting all of the news about education in your state.
You can also set up multiple alerts, such as “Science” “Texas” “Education” which gives you a more specific results.
Go ahead, stop waiting and hoping for the local fish wrap to deliver the education news. One thing I really like is that not only does Google tell me about the large city dailies like the Austin American Statesman, it also scrapes the blogs as well, so I can see what is happening in the state blogs.
Be proactive and have the news you care about delivered to you every day.
