NECC Tuesday Session 4

The last concurrent presentation for me on Tuesday was called Information Avalanche Rescue: RSS Feeds in the Classroom. The information can be found at http://eduscapttes.com/sessions/rss. This session gave a great overview of what RSS is, the tools that you can use to get the RSS feeds and then gave ways to integrate RSS into your classroom. They discussed using web based aggregators as apposed to the ones built into your browser (the browser ones are available only on your machine). They also discussed services available to create your own RSS feeds (such as feedburner) for posting on the web. Finally, they gave a whole lot of resources (websites, podcasts, feeds etc) that can be used in the classroom.
