I’m hooked on RSS feeds- so easy, so convenient, and such a time saver. What was I waiting for? Why didn’t I do this sooner? I’m almost kicking myself. I added Read Roger (Horn Book), The Children’s Room (Springfield VT Town Library), Picture Book of the Day, PlanetEsme and many more. I suspect some of these will help keep me up to date on new picture books and make me a better member of the Red Clover Committee. I’d love other suggestions on feeds to add, especially any related to being a k-6 library media specialist.
Does anyone know why some blogs/sites cannot be added? I was hoping to include the SurRural Librarian and the VSLA site but couldn’t get them to work.
I’m not sure if I will use this with students, but I would love to demo it for teachers. It’s a great way to keep up to date on news and events in the field. Perhaps we need a working inservice where we can assist teachers in finding and feeding useful sites and blogs in the field of education. I certainly plan to spend more time thinking about how to use this tool more and how to educate others about it.
