RSS: How to keep current with your favorite blogs
Sep 30th, 2011 by flanpa

This is a great video to share with your students and/or their parents.  It shows how to use RSS (Google Reader in this video) to track all your favorite blogs.  I added all of Kaylee’s teachers, a couple of family blogs, Girl Scouts blog, other school blogs, and even the Tiger Talk!  Now I know when something is updated without having to go check each blog everyday.
Google Reader can be viewed on your iPhone.  I am testing to see if I like one of the apps better than the Google mobile version.  Ask me in a couple of weeks if you are interested.
I also added the blogs I wanted to follow to my Outlook email software at home.  Now the blogs I want to read show when I open Outlook.  You can add your Google Calendar to update in Outlook.  So, when you open your email everything is at your fingertips.
If you want more information about how to use Google reader their help section is good.
