Thing 5: More RSS and Subscriptions

RSS can be a difficult concept for some to grasp right away - what questions do you have? What didn't work or doesn't make sense? How might you use RSS in your personal or professional life? Find anything in your searching that you'd recommend to others?

I use RSS feeds in iGoogle to keep up with news as it pertains to modernism. I have feeds that come in from other blogs, The National Trust, DOCOMOMO etc.

I could see teachers doing the same thing. Are you a reading teacher? Subscribe to library or other reading specialists blogs?

Science teacher? Subscribe to NASA's blog.

The challenge is that, like going to the store, you have a lot of choices. The information is all available and it's up to you to separate wheat from chaff but isn't that something else we should be teaching too?
