Thing #9 RSS Feed Search Resources

Now that I'm somewhat familiar with RSS feeds, I've really enjoyed exploring all the search options available. Bloglines seems similar to a Google search in that there are many results with each topic searched. However, many of the results are unrelated to the topic so I wasn't very impressed with this option. I could have spent days exploring Edublog's award winners. I particularly liked the blog Creating Lifelong learners. Mathew Needleman is an amazing teacher and I was excited to see that I share many of his educational opinions. In his most recent post, Mathew shared an assessment chart that is so simple and very eye opening. Reading the red dots vertically shows a struggling teacher where as reading the red dots horizontally shows a struggling student. Topix.net was not my favorite. I found it extremely cluttered and unappealing. Technorati was my favorite because it's so organized. You can search by post or blog and in many different categories and subjects. I found it very user friendly. All in all Thing #9 was a very fascinating journey!

  4. Pretty cool how the red dots down show teacher trouble and red across shows a student struggling. Very interesting.
