Thing #18 - RSS Feed

  I was pleasantly surprised to find out about the RSS feed.  I have used IGoogle for years and have not explored many of the tools if offers.  The RSS feeds is a valuable tool for educators for many reasons.  First, it allows you to subscribe to articles or blogs and have it "delivered" whenever there are new posts.  You do not have to search for them.  Another reason RSS are valuable is that you can send the posts conveniently through email, right off the post to your peers.  When an interesting or important article is found, it is so easy to share with colleges.  Lastly, as a teacher I may find a lot of Weblog and media sites on the Internet that are consistently publishing interesting and relevant information, and to keep on top of these is nearly impossible.
