Thing 8: RSS Feeds and Readers
What do you like about RSS and readers?
RSS Feeds and Readers are time savers-instead of having to manually input web addresses, I now simply click> click> click> and I am caught up for the day. Time is a premium commodity.
How do you think you might be able to use this technology in your school or personal life?
I am now using RSS feeds to to stay in touch with fellow readers-librarians, teachers, editors, authors, etc.- to share ideas and hear the latest news in the literary world. RSS feeds and use of Google Reader simplifies this.
How can libraries/teachers/administrators use readers or take advantage of this new technology?
Simply by using it. They will immediately realize how much time they will save. A quick reader check before class will allow teachers/librarians to stay current and incorporate current events or new ideas into classroom learning experiences.
