experience current events in the timeliest manner possible with a world perspective on the particular event.
Any teacher who is using technology in their teaching likely has some information that they would be willing to share with other teachers. If that teacher has a blog or webpage, that information can be shared with literally thousands of other teachers via an RSS feed. Whether a teacher records their reflections, a lesson plan, some web site links, a new concept or idea, other teachers around the globe can learn from their experiences.
While the above list is short, I do believe that RSS feeds will have a major impact on the way we receive our information in the future. Some marketing experts even suggest RSS feeds may be a viable alternative to email – no spam, no viruses and, at this point, no advertising. Being aware of and in control of the information and news that is pertinent to anyone is vital. RSS feeds allow this to happen in a relatively painless non-technical manner. It’s an upcoming tool that any educator would be wise to incorporate in their professional toolkit.
