Web 2.0 for Organization TIE585AC Integrating Web 2.0 Applications in the Classroom Module #6 Image source:
Organization Organization means different things to different people. Some can have a pile of papers scattered across their desk and can find what they need in a minute. Others need everything neatly spelled out and in proper order to function Web 2.0 offers a great deal of organizational tools for you personally as an educator and for you to use with students as well
RSS Feeds RSS Feeds offer a valuable way to stay organized for educators RSS stands for Really Simple Syndication (but sometimes is referred to as Rich Site Summary) An RSS feed acts as a fetching machine. Instead of you going out to 20+ websites searching for new information an RSS feed allows that new content to be brought right to you RSS Feeds can be found everywhere! Books, recipes, blogs, tv listings, viral videos, sports, quotes of the day, weather, and more!

Internet Starter Pages Internet Starter Pages act as homepages each time you log in to the Internet. These pages can contain hundreds of different widgets (i.e. mini computer programs) They are meant as a way to organize the Internet content you are most interested in seeing on a consistant basis You can pull RSS feeds into your start pages
