How does RSS Feeds improve learning.


List of Educational Blogs


If you are following interesting sites, blogs, etc. using RSS, how about sharing the Name, the URL, and a short explanation of why you follow it here?


One blog I follow is Teaching College Math because the author sends a great weekly link round-up.  The topics are useful for high school teachers, in spite of the name: http://teachingcollegemath.com/ 


Another blog I follow is Alfred Thompson's blog Computer Science Teacher: http://blogs.msdn.com/b/alfredth/.  He is closely connected to the Advanced Placement Computer Science program, and posts a lot of interesting content for teachers of computer science.


Another great computer, math, and science blog: http://computinged.wordpress.com/


Richard Bryne's blog Free Technology for Teachers provides links to free software that educators and students can use. Blog's URL: http://www.freetech4teachers.com/


Kelly Walsh 's blog Emerging Ed Tech contains post about how to align technologies with classroom activies to enchance the learning process for students. Blog's URL:http://www.emergingedtech.com/2011/10/how-does-cyber-safety-affect-technology-and-education/


In addition to following all blogs from this class, I am following my school's RSS feed "Roberts Middle School News" http://www.cfalls.summit.k12.oh.us/rssNews.ashx?schoolid=3 to stay up-to-date on school events and announcements. 


I am also following bolichreads https://twitter.com/statuses/user_timeline/164350117.rss a feed set up by another librarian in my district to keep up with books most recently added to our collection.

Students can "tweet" about their favorite books here as well.~Carolyn Crosier

Hi, All! I'm on bloglines.com.... I'm following my classmates blogs, as well as readwritethink, npr, my church (which I just discovered has an rss feed), and now that I've seen one of my classmates noted it - will be following the DIY feed! :-)

I'm also using Bloglines and really don't like it! I have no idea how often it updates, but not nearly often enough. When I post to my blog, it instantly posts to my Google Reader aggregator, but usually not to Bloglines until the next day. Anyhow, just some food for thought.

The feed that I'm following, in addition to my classmates' blogs, is an RSS created from education and technology tags from Delicious. These are the two things I'm most intersted in, so I figured I'd let everyone else do the digging and I'll just do the reading. The url for this feed is http://delicious.com/tag/education+technology

I am following my classmates blogs plus several others. The others are blogs of some business and computer teachers and one about business in general that I just found interesting for ideas, views on topics and sometimes just humor. They are the following: http://coolcatteacher.blogspot.com/ - a computer teacher,
http://wicked-teacher.blogspot.com/ - a computer teacher, http://mrpetersonsclassroom.blogspot.com/ - a business teacher and http://blog.morebusiness.com/ - business tips and information since I also teach business classes.

Ah, blogging and following bloggers! I am using Netvibes to manage all this and I like it well enough, but since I am a neophyte at this, what do I know!:)

I am following all my classmates and feel the blogging allows for a more personal expression than posts in the discussion boards. I enjoy that - show some personality! I have been using wordpress for my blog and find it really easy to use. I have successfully uploaded video to it which is nice.

I am also following
www.edutopia.org because I always find cool stuff there related to education.
www.sifassocation.org because SIF (Schools Interoperability Framework) is big in education technology right now. I am also a member of the association's executive board, so I have to follow it, don't I ?
http://ies.ed.gov/whatsnew/ - this is the Institute of Education Sciences site. I attend the National Center Education Statistics conferences twice a year. NCES is part of IES. This is the reseach arm of the Dept of Education - interesting things come out of this place, if you are an education data geek like myself.
