This would be an example of when I am probably the last person to find out about something. Yesterday while reading through my daily dose of the Blogosphere I saw a post about Pageflakes. This free online product is a website that collects various RSS feeds to create a unique homepage for individual students. The layout is very similar to an iGoogle page, but it is customized for students and includes links to useful tools such as updated grades, calendars, and class schedules. Each of the components can be added or deleted to create a customized page. Will Richardson also had the idea of using Pageflakes as a way to continuously collect up to date information for a topic your students are studying in class. What a great way for tech savvy students to stay organized and learn about RSS feeds!
