Highlighting the work of Bloggers

As I try to get teachers in our school divsion to drink the “blog k00l-aid” and the RSS kool-aid, I struggle like many in showing them and exposing them to what it really is and what it can do for their classrooms.

Alan Levine’s feed2javascript has been a great tool in demonstrating these tools for local teachers. I can use it to highlight local news as well as feature teachers who have gotten into blogging. I’ve already had some interest in blogging since including this script on our homepage.

UPDATE: We were having some issues with our page loading slowly due to the script not being housed locally. Thanks to our new network analyst who just started on Monday, he installed the script locally and it works slick. Thanks Ryan!
