Thing #8 - RSS Feeds

At first I found this very frustrating.  I wasn't really sure what I was suppose to do with this. Then I found a list with some wonderful choices to subscribe to.  I have fallen in love with Joyce Valenza and I really seemed to gel with Doug Johnson's quirkiness.  I think Google Reader can be invaluable.  I believe I will really enjoy using the account I set up.  I never really thought about how much time I spend searching or retrieving the same sites when it is so much easier for it to be sent to me on a regular basis. 

In terms of librarian use, I think it will be wonderful having immediate and continuous access to my most trusted sites for information that is essential to my profession.  This will keep me linked to the most current research and "thinking" in my field. 

I think anytime we, as educators, have access to professional literature, it will help us be more effective in our learning communities.

  1. yes, keeping up with new things and current research is so fast now and a reader makes it easy to know when new ideas are out there! Don't know what I would do if I didn't have my reader!
