So my newest find is linking those websites important to me into my own RSS (Really Simple,Syndication) reader. Google has a RSS reader that allows you to "TAILOR" the internet to suit your interest.
The google version for a "reader" was an ease to set up. They have a FREE google reader account that you use. If you already have a google account, just log in and go to www.google.com/reader and start "staring" some of their suggestions. Also, if you're on a webpage that looks like an orange colored echo, then click on it. It will add it to your google reader subscription, without an extra step! The only apprehension I had is that when I started to create my google account, they had a notice that said google reader would not be available after July 1, 2013!! OH, NO!!! I don't know what to do, but for now, click on these following links for the EASE and KNOW HOW of creating your own newsreader!!!!
I can SO see using this in the classroom to follow an author's blog or if you're students are want to know the latest discoveries in space, then they can easily subscribe to and tune in to all the latest information.
If you tune into my posts regularly, then you already know that I created a Symbaloo account. I'm presently achieving the task of having those sites on my symbaloo homepage subscribed to my RSS reader! It's daunting, but those are websites that I care to know about, therefore, they're worth the effort! Below is what the Google Reader Homepage looks like:
