RSS stands for Real Simple Syndication or Rich
Site Summary.

A web page with a .xml file type that can be


subscribed to and read by a newsreader
(aggregator). The aggregator will find the new
content and display it when it becomes available.

In essence, it is content that comes to you,


instead of having to search for it. It will save you
an infinite amount of time.

Social bookmarking is a method for Internet users
to store, organize, search, and manage bookmarks
of web pages on the Internet with the help of
metadata (tags).

Folksonomy (from folk + taxonomy) is the practice


and method of collaboratively creating and managing
tags to annotate and categorize content.

Source: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Social_bookmarking
http://delicious.com/zaidlearn
1. Great for groups researching a topic together or an instructor that
wants to share great websites they have found.
2. Others can subscribe to your bookmarks or individual tags and
receive them whenever the publisher adds a new bookmark.
3. Create working bibliographies for projects by ensuring they share a
common tag.
4. Build lists of resources with fellow students/ teachers (decide on
common tags first).
5. Create a network with friends or fellow club members with whom
you share an interest.
6. Spend a few minutes planning how you’ll tag so that your tags are
consistent (remember – no spaces within tags!)
– Plural vs singular
– Teacher’s names / course names
7. Clean up your tags periodically using the delete and rename tag
functions.
