So Much Content, So Little Time #edtech

Now that I have a Kindle Fire, I'm realizing how little time I actually have to read.  I never took a speed reading class but perhaps it's time and Readfa.st may be the solution I choose.  Readfa.st is a reading improvement.  After you first sign up for an account, you take a baseline assessment (currently I'm reading at 380 words a minute).  The also provide comprehension quizzes and you can pull in your own articles to practice on from any website.  Readfa.st only shows a certain number of words from the article as it scrolls through to help keep you focused. It's an interesting idea.  It also has a social and competitive aspect in that you can friend other users of the site.  Definitely worth a look.
