Thing #9 - Adding RSS Feeds
RSS feeds will take some time for me - I like this tool, but am not good at it yet! I didn't see any difference between looking for the icon on a site I read regularly and checking sources such as the ones listed. Syndic8 was the most confusing of the ones listed; Google and Topix were the easiest fo me to use. Wetpaint seems like a great site for teachers; I plan to go back to it when I have more time; check Topix Offbeat for the weird and wacky. The good news is this really does open the world to anyone and could be a great resource for students; the bad news is, it can, as the narrator of the video in Thing #8 said, be addicitve. Everyone - students included - should look, read, then move on to something else; my concern is that people can find themselves spending too much time in front of the screen.
