Abstract

RSS, an acronym for Rich Site Summary, Real Simple Syndication, or RDF Site Summary, represents an important technology that allows the user to subscribe to web content through the use of an aggregator or feed reader. Although an obvious benefit of RSS feeds is the ability to stay current, the technology presents a powerful web-based method to support teaching, learning and research.This presentation describes relevant uses of RSS in the educational environment including strategies for designing lessons enriched through RSS and the role of RSS in providing collaborative research opportunities for students and teachers. The session features an overview of RSS, a demonstration of RSS in action as well as examples of exciting educational applications.
