How To Integrate and Publish Curated RSS Feeds On Your WordPress Blog

How To Integrate and Publish Curated RSS Feeds On Your WordPress Blog | Leadership Think Tank | Scoop.it

Robin Good: For content curators who own or manage a WordPress-based website here is a great tutorial on how RSS feeds can be integrated and published directly (parsed) on any given web page. 

 

Authored by Vladislav Davidzon this excellent tutorial requires some basic technical knowledge on how to operate WordPress variables and functions and it provides precise guidance on how to:

 

- Utilize the Built-in Parsing Function to Pull RSS Feeds in and Turn their XML code into Content

 

- Divide Content into the Right Number of Columns for your Website’s Design

 

- Create a Friendly Display of RSS Content Using WordPress Loop Variables

 

From the tutorial: "Included only since version 2.7 of the WordPress software, the ability to parse RSS feeds as content and include that information into a template file is relatively new and its parameters are largely unknown even among the more advanced members of the WordPress development community at large.

 

Luckily, these parameters are easy to learn and customize, and they can turn a simple RSS feed into a great source of extra content and discussion on already-busy WordPress blogs.

 

Not only can RSS feeds be parsed by WordPress, but they can also be split up into columns and tabs.

 

This allows for feeds to actually be used as the primary source of content on some WordPress blogs, especially those that consider themselves a mere aggregator of outside content rather than a producer of unique news, reviews, or commentary on any topic."

 

 

Very useful. 9/10

To Foster Productivity and Creativity in Class, Ditch the Desks! - Mind/Shift

To Foster Productivity and Creativity in Class, Ditch the Desks! - Mind/Shift | Leadership Think Tank | Scoop.it
hen elementary school teacher Erin Klein sat in one of her students’ desks last year, she noticed a few things about her classroom space.

For one, the room itself was long and narrow, and the space was awkward. Large, clunky student desks crowded the classroom. And the desks themselves got in the way of students being able to comfortably work together. Even though Klein had the desks in groups of four, her second-grade students were far from each other because the compartments in the desks for student supplies were large, forcing the kids to communicate and work together over a vast span of desk space.

Pärnänen Anna & Sutela Hanna. 2014. Itsensätyöllistäjät Suomessa 2013. Helsinki: Tilastokeskus.

 

"Kyseessä on Tilastokeskuksen ensimmäinen, kattavalla väestöotoksella toteutettu yksin yrittäjinä tai yrittäjämäisesti työskenteleviä koskeva surveytutkimus. Raportissa tarkastellaan laajasti itsensätyöllistäjien työmarkkina-asemaa ja työoloja: kuinka itsensätyöllistäjäksi on päädytty, millaista itsensätyöllistäjänä toimiminen on, miten ryhmän työolot eroavat palkansaajista. Raportissa käsitellään niin ikään itsensätyöllistäjien kasvuhalukkuutta, toimeentuloa ja sosiaaliturvaan liittyviä kysymyksiä.

If your organization were a group of musicians, what group would you be? What would your music be like, your lyrics? What kind of experience would your fans have? How would the band members interact?

 

And now, what group would you like to be?
