RSS is a way for delivering regularly changing web content.  The easyest wasy to mange Rss is with a feeder. Instead of going to every web site and click through those pages so you can find the new topics you wish to veiw.  With a RSS reader you can click on the rss feed for that site and add it to your reeder.  Which the reeder will update the post every time there is a change in information.  So you can simply go to your reader to check on all the new information instead of going through 3 or 4 web sites which takes time.  There reasons to use RSS feeds that it saves time and step to get information and makes it easyer and faster to get more new information.  The RSS are most of the time summary of the topic giving a few detail here and there.  To get most of the information you can just click on the link and it well simply load the info right there without switching to another page.  The infomaton is mostly new to me as well so i plan on soon getting a free RSS feeder and puting some feeds into to make searching the internet faster.  I have a few web sites that i check  almost few hours so i can see the advantages of RSS.  I found this video that explained how easy it was to setup a RSS Feeder.  I only wish that I would have know about this stuff ealier it would have been so much easyier to find some stuff.


It’s a area or space in which a person knows that space is just for them where they sit down or stand up and have almost complete creative  control.  The environment around them is there to manage there time set goals for the future and getting stuff done.  My Personal Learning Environment is in my room sitting in my rolling chair faceing my desks and computer screens.  The desk  is normaly very messy it  filled with many coke cans, pens, pencils, and other random items.  Then normaly im talking to people on the computer or listening to music well getting stuff done.  Some PLE are actaul programs that help u magne your time.  They have time schedules that you can set up and stick to so you dont get side tracked with other things.  Others PLE are some web based services that can help u plan, set, and mange goals for the future.  PLE’s  help mange your learning but profiding exps also they mange the content you learn so it would filter out the useless stuff you dont need to know.  Also the progess at which you learn  so if your very visual there is lots of picture or if  you have to hear stuff to get it they say it out loud for you.  PLE are new  and are going to challenge the current way schools and INST are teaching.  I think if we can combine them in a unique fashion the new system of teaching could bring the world into a new level of thinking.



  Your top three intelligences:

Intelligence Score (5.0 is highest) Description

Social 4.43 Social: You like to develop ideas and learn from other people. You like to talk. You have good social skills. Effective techniques of enhancing your learning using your social intelligence include taking part in group discussions or discussing a topic one-to-one with another person. Find ways to build reading and writing exercises into your group activities, such as:

  • Reading a dialogue or a play with other people
  • Doing team learning/investigating projects
  • Setting up interview questions and interviewing your family, and writing down the interview
  • Writing notes to another instead of talking.

Self 4 Self: You have a very good sense of self. You like to spend time by yourself and think things over. You will often take in information from another person, mull it over by yourself, and come back to that person later to discuss it. You like working on projects on your own. You often prefer to learn by trial and error. Effective techniques to enhance your learning include keeping a journal and giving yourself time to reflect on new ideas and information. More ideas:

  • Go on “guided imagery” tours.
  • Set aside time to reflect on new ideas and information.
  • Encourage journal writing.
  • Work on the computer.
  • Practice breathing for relaxation.
  • Use brainstorming methods before reading.
  • Listen to and read “how to” tapes and books.
  • Read cookbooks.

Body 3.71 Body Movement: You like to move, dance, wiggle, walk, and swim. You are likely good at sports, and you have good fine motor skills. You may enjoy taking things apart and putting them back together. Incorporating body movement into your learning will help you process and retain information better. Here are some ideas.

  • Trace letters and words on each other’s back.
  • Use magnetic letters, letter blocks, or letters on index cards to spell words.
  • Take a walk while discussing a story or gathering ideas for a story.
  • Make pipe cleaner letters. Form letters out of bread dough. After you shape your letters, bake them and eat them!
  • Use your whole arm (extend without bending your elbow) to write letters and words in the air.
  • Change the place where you write and use different kinds of tools to write, ie., typewriter, computer, blackboard, or large pieces of paper.
  • Write on a mirror with lipstick or soap.
  • Take a walk and read all the words you find during the walk.
  • Handle a Koosh ball or a worry stone during a study session.
  • Take a break and do a cross-lateral walk.

I mostly agree with the Assessment i like talking with people wither it be on the phone, on ventrilo or in perosn. Im a very easy person to get along with maybe a little quiet or shy at first but its w/e. I also like to just spend time by myself either read or just think about life itself and or anything that else that seems fun.
