The Rest of the Story(s)

After an initial flurry of activity and comments from some Twitter users, Paper.li seems to have settled in to a regular routine.  I look forward to my daily read of the Ontario Educators Daily to find out what sorts of things that other Ontario educators are reading.  It’s a great way to stay on top of the latest trends.  At a current total of 220 contributors, the group is a wide and diverse body of folks with all kinds of interests.  It isn’t uncommon to see very interesting stories in the categories of Business, Media, Education, Art & Entertainment, Technology, Media, and so much more.

Notice that I sneaked in the cellphone message from the premier?  Thanks, Jamie.

I am really impressed with the algorithm that the designers use to determine what stories are chosed to appear on the front paper.  Whatever they’re doing, it always leads to a great selection of top stories to read.  I had a discussion about this and more than one person lamented the fact that there wasn’t more to be read.

Well, there is – if you know where to look for it.  The page that appears in the notification link is the Front Page of the daily newspaper.  Like a traditional paper newspaper, the Front Page is designed to give you the highlights and get you engaged.  There are sections with lots more material.

In the banner for each section, just look to the right to the "more" and the number in parentheses.  In the section, you’re just seeing the top story. 

The rest can be found by clicking "more".  You’ll get the opportunity to enjoy all of the stories that have been contributed on that day

And, if you’re one of those people that like to read newspapers from cover to cover, check out all of the stories made available from the headline banner.

So, if you have the time, don’t just skim the headlines – check out the rest of the stories.
