Really Simple Syndication The New Killer App for Educators Having trouble keeping up with the sites you visit? You have access to all this information on the Web but you hardly have time to sit down at the corner café and enjoy a cup of coffee. So how do you make sure, that in the little time you have, you are surfing the sites that apply to your interests? The answer is RSS! Richardson, W. (2010). Blogs, Wikis, Podcasts and Other Powerful Web Tools for Classrooms. Thousand Oaks, CA: Corwin. RSS stands for “Really Simple Syndication”.
And according to Richardson, it is the one tool that you, as an educator, “should start using today, right now, this minute.” Luckily, it is a super simple tool that is really easy to manage. Watch this video on Youtube: "How RSS Works” for an introduction into the world of RSS: For the activity, we would like you to set up a FREE Feeder Reader with Google Reader. Watch this YouTube video "Google Reader in Plain English" Google Reader (n.d.). Retrived (2012), http://www.google.com/reader RSS is a coding method (XML) for you to receive all of the information or "news feeds" you're interested in just by subscribing to a particular website or weblog. Therefore, you no longer have to visit each individual site or blog. As stated by Richardson, "the content comes to you instead of you going to go get it, hence Really Simple Syndication". Richardson, W. (2010). Blogs, Wikis, Podcasts and Other Powerful Web Tools for Classrooms. Thousand Oaks, CA: Cowrin. An aggregator is a website or computer software that allows you to collect the feeds that are of interest to you or relevant for your classroom-all in one place. It is updated regularly so that you will receive the most current news feeds. You are then able to read the individual stories at any time or save them for future reading. For Activity # 3 we would like you to create a Google Reader and subscribe to 10 feeds. Details are listed in the activity sheet. Once you learn how to subscribe to feeds, you will be able to organize them in separate folders & categories by going to "feed settings". You can also manage your feeds by "starring" them, editing the tags, and even share them with friends using the g+1 link. We believe it is best to check your "Daily Me" regularly, as you would when normally browsing the web. Group Discussion Group 1-
