During a parent conference yesterday it was really nice to hear a parent say "When are you going to send us an email with updates and links to what's been going on in the classroom?"
It made me realise that many of the parents in my class rely on emails coming to them. They are very busy and need information delivered to them.
I replied "Have you heard of RSS feeds? They would be really helpful for you."
I think I might need to run a parent training session on these.
Before I get around to doing that, here's a youtube clip, which is quite old in internet terms (2007) which explains how you use RSS feeds to make life simpler by making blogs and news sites come to you.
