RSS feeds interest me, but I am not sure I am seeing the “real value” behind them. I already have so much going on in a day and read a lot of information that it seems EXTREMELY difficult to keep up with reading RSS feeds! I do think RSS feeds are fascinating in that they are constantly keeping you updated but it is an overwhelming amount of information coming through. Although, I must admit, I got slightly addicted to subscribing when I found something even remotely interesting. I am pleased with some of the feeds I joined and now I just need to make it a priority to keep myself up to date with those feeds and the significant information they are providing me with. One aspect in google reader that I liked was the ability to organize the feeds I subscribed to. This will make it much easier to access the blogs, feeds, etc that I find important in my teaching life and to separate the others I subscribed to as a personal preference.
Any suggestions for how to use these with Elementary kids or as an access points with parents??
