RSS is something that I was not overly familiar with before this class started. I thought of newsfeed only as something connected to social media sites; however, the research for this class has really been an eye opening experience. I learned an immense amount of information on what an RSS feed is, how it can be incorporated in the classroom, the information that can be found, and more.
The most difficult part of this assignment is that I feel there is still so much more to learn. Feedly has so much to offer that one week just did not feel like enough. I am looking forward to learning more about Feedly and how to incorporate it even more in the classroom. I feel like Feedly (or something similar) is a wonderful way to encourage reading articles in the classroom. If I had more time, I would have spent more time on Feedly. I feel like I could spend hours reading and posting articles. I hope that students feel the same loss of time in reading and researching the articles on Feedly.
While I have not yet incorporated this lesson in my classroom, I am excited to do so. I feel that the students will show growth in reading comprehension and analysis of text. I cannot wait to try this out. I may be able to modify it and incorporate it second semester only. I really like the idea of using Google Drive to create a portfolio for students to assess their own work.
