RSS Readers in the Classroom

RSS Readers can be very beneficial in the classroom, especially at the high school level since my future students will more than likely be proficient in technology. RSS Readers are great for teachers that teach one particular subject like me and science. They allow people to subscribe to a lot of different feeds and you can read all of them from your RSS page. For students, I could have each of them make an RSS account and have each of them subscribe to different blogs and websites. From there I could assign current events, or just some reading that relates to what we are doing in class that day. From their RSS page, they would be able to easily find what I assigned.

I am currently using Bloglines.com and I am subscribed to five other EDUC 260 blogs:
