Couple of Cool Webpages

Hi folks,

I just wanted to share a couple of really cool web pages I've discovered.

The first one is "Spreeder". <==(Click Here).

It is a speed reading assistance site. You copy whatever text you want to speed read and paste it into the box. Then let 'er rip. There are all kinds of settings you can adjust to tune the website to your preferences and ability. The basic idea is that your brain can absorb the meaning of the words faster than you realize. Most of us "Sound out in our head" each word we read which unnecessarily slows the process down. You can comprehend much faster than you can speak. This site forces you to do that. You GOTTA TRY IT!

The second one is "77 Ways to Learn Faster, Deeper and Better" <==(Click Here)
It is an article about different ways of supporting and enhancing learning. Some of the ideas are wacky so toss those out but I enjoyed going through the list and learning all the resources it mentions.

Just thought I'd share those with you! Tell me what you think!
