Thing #8 RSS Feeds
It took me 2 times to go through Thing 8 and I still only have a small handle on RSS Feeds. Granted, the first time I went through it was 8:00 p.m. which my body seems to think is my bedtime. I subscribed to American Idol because that's my favorite show at the moment. I really enjoy that I can read everyone's new blog postings without having to open up each one to see if there's anything new. I see how teachers can use this new technology by setting up RSS feeds for students to follow current events or useful blogs. It makes sharing information and collaborating much more accessible to the web 2.0 user. I feel like I still have a lot to learn about how to take full advantage of this application but right now I'm just enjoying the fact that I know what an RSS feed is!
