What Are You “Feeding” Your Students?
Google Reader is great because it is free and you only need a Google account to get started. Once you set up your account, the rest is just a matter of finding the content you want to subscribe to. I personally have been inspired to give RSS a deeper look because I feel that it can be a great tool for busy professionals. As a prospective teacher, I may not always have time to check a particular site for new information and news. However, with the help of RSS, I can still receive the information I desire without having to constantly search for it in my busy schedule. Students can even use RSS feeds for current event projects, research topics, or even student blogs. Overall, online users can use these feeds to locate information easily, classify and categorize information, as well as maximize their time without dealing with spam issues. The following is a video that outlines this RSS feed process.
