How I Use It
I had my Advanced Readers sign up for their own Feedly accounts to create a daily feed of easy-to-find articles. After an introduction and initial instruction from me, my junior and seniors were able to create their own accounts and curate their feeds according to their individual interests. Throughout our Advanced Reading class (a rigorous English elective that prepares students for college reading), students are required to respond to non-fiction articles from various sources. Feedly facilitates this by allowing students to have daily access to articles of most interest to them.
My Take
This is a great tool that provides a way for students to find, bookmark and organize articles. Students can have a number of articles - categorized for their own needs or interests - at their fingertips, in one place. In the future, I'd like to use this as a tool for students to find and save sources for research papers.
