Transcript of Google Reader

Google Reader What's the problem? How does Reader solve it? There's a lot of great information on the web!

BUT...it's way too much to keep track of without help. We can't just check 20 websites every day. We have other jobs to do.
Google Reader is NOT one more site to check.
Quite the opposite, actually!

Google Reader brings new updates from sites to us, so we can do all our reading in one place. It's like subscribing to your favorite magazines, instead of constantly checking different newsstands for new issues.

Instead of magazines though, Google Reader subscribes to . Feeds are a collection of updates from a site. What does this look like? Let's sign up for Google Reader, if we haven't already. http://www.google.com/reader IF YOU NEED HELP, DON'T HESITATE TO ASK! There's a high price to pay for cutting out the Internet... Keeping up with relevant sites is important! You need to stay...

informed (keep up with the latest information)
inspired (know you're making a difference)
connected (find others who can help with your mission)
Subscribing to sites is easy It's time to play! (A) Check out some cool feeds picked out for you by Katie Johnson from CEDAM. http://bit.ly/at9pWq (B) Try out some advanced features to make Reader work even better for you. http://bit.ly/dlN32R Don’t feel obligated to read every single item! If you feel like your feeds are overwhelming you, unsubscribe from some or simply mark all items as read and start fresh.

Use the 80/20 rule. It’s likely that 80% of the utility you get from Google Reader will come from only 20% of the feeds you read, so regularly weed out the less useful ones.

See if you can limit the kinds of posts you get from a source. For example, instead of searching "New York Times", try "New York Times Education" or "New York Times Politics" if your interests are more specific. “Aggh! Now I have over 1000 unread items, but I don’t have time to read them all! What do I do?!”
