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

The First 5s with iPads

The First 5s with iPads | Leadership Think Tank | Scoop.it

With the start of school approaching and the looming expectation of incorporating iPads into the curriculum becoming a reality, the big question many educators are asking is: "Where should I begin?" Last year, I wrote about 5 Steps for the First 5 Days. However, what about the five days after that?

It can seem daunting to envision a year's worth of activities with iPads, but when taken in small chunks, it doesn't need to be intimidating. Taking a note from Alan November's talks about the #1st5days, consider what is possible in the first five hours, days, and weeks of school.

En tiedä onko tästä ollut jo keskustelua, ajatuksia?

Australialainen koululainen Taj Pabari leikki vuosi sitten koulussa 3d-tulostimella. Tehtävänä oli tulostaa kaksi levyä ja liittää ne yhteen, mutta Pabari päättikin tuottaa levyjen väliin vähän sisältöä.

The list is totally focused on digital technologies. I think clouds are a good thing from a poetic perspective. They are helpful when it comes to saving my work, as well. We have too many people and teachers who think that clouds are instrumental and digital only.

Wow! How cool is this? While the price point is still well out of my budget, it is certainly more affordable than many of its competitors, the biggest one being MakerBot. I think what appeals to me is that Dremel is a well-known brand associated with quality and with providing tools that are user-friendly in the creative arena. So, I have a feeling that this new tool will certainly be reaching for that same quality and user experience.  Time will tell if it truly can compete with other 3D printers on the market in regards to ease of use as well as the quality of the final output products. 

 

Dremel, if you are reading this, I'm more than happy to be a reviewer/tester for this product! ;-)

Väitös: 19.9.: Tieto- ja viestintätekniikan opetus kaipaa yhtenäisiä oppimateriaaleja (Ekonoja) — Jyväskylän yliopisto | Leadership Think Tank | Scoop.it

Tieto- ja viestintätekniikkaa (TVT) opetetaan suomalaisissa yläkouluissa harvoin valmiiden yhtenäisten oppimateriaalien avulla. Hyvin usein opettajat kokoavat materiaalit itse eri lähteistä. Ekonojan tutkimuksen mukaan kuitenkin myös TVT:n opetuksessa valmiista oppimateriaaleista on monenlaista hyötyä sekä opettajille että oppilaille. Ne muun muassa helpottavat opettajien tuntien suunnittelua. Oppilaat puolestaan hyötyvät mm. monipuolisista harjoitusteh
