I read an article today from Mashable Social Media. It relates to my earlier post about our responsibility as adults to teach and model digital citizenship (see link below). As I scanned other topics posted by this group, I realized that this is a blog that I want to follow with RSS on my Google Reader account. If you have blogs that you like to follow, try Google Reader. It's easy to use. RSS stands for "Really Simple Syndication." Tools like Google Reader monitor your favorite blogs and websites for updated information. When a new post or article occur, they create a link on your page which lets you know that there's an update, and provides a link for you to read the article. I also use my Google Reader like a bookmark gathering spot. When I find a blog author that I like, rather than bookmarking the page, I add it to my Google Reader. By doing this, I don't have to remember, "Oh yeah, I liked this site... I should go check it again." Google Reader and using RSS is a great way to support your professional learning network.  Happy Collaborating!
