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!


  1. Im betting as time goes by, you will find more reasons to keep up with things and adding to your reader will become your choice for keeping in touch!

  2. I did not even think about subscribing to my favorite shows. What a fun application.

  3. These are also great, because you can get information about what is going on in the real world while you are at school! KISD allows google reader we no longer have to live in a bubble :-) (of course who has the time to look during the school day anyways...hahaha)
