Thanks for looking Smile

"Feeds" in not too many easy steps

28 Jun 2008 8:26PM   Views : 375 Unique : 323

Or "an idiots guide," as I now follow how to use them!!
This may be so basic that everyone knows exactly what to do and are already using them. But for me it was just short of rocket science to discover, that I can have an extra column next to my favourites on the left hand side of my monitor, that can take me straight into the blogs I want to follow.
"How can this happen?" you may also be asking.
Well you simply click on the little orange icon at the head of a members blog that says subscribe
It then says:-
"You are viewing a feed that contains frequently updated content. When you subscribe to a feed, it is added to the Common Feed List. Updated information from the feed is automatically downloaded to your computer and can be viewed in Internet Explorer and other programs."
"Learn more about feeds" - when you click this many questions you may have are answered.
So I boldly went where no Helen Burridge had been before and now I have 4 blogs listed each time I go on line and "click" - I'm straight in.
Now this should have been an informative blog entry!!
So as those who know better than I sugest..................I end with a question
"Has this been helpful AND will you now use it?"
Answers on a postcard!!

.........................and there was a deathly silence!! Wink

It's okay, I'll answer! Smile No, because I spend all my time on this site, so I know who I've visited and who I'd like to keep up with - if I want to save the page I do it in my 'Quick Links' (under my avatar picture). I have put in a suggestion (the folks behind scenes are considering it for the next upgrade) that a little arrow comes up next to blogs you've joined in (like it does in the forum).

The blog section is a little quiet at the moment though, and it's easy enough to keep up.

That's the thing with this site Helen: you learn something new every day.

Thanks Karen and John
Fair enough Karen. I don't and so its been helpful, and I also use quick links. Your suggestion sounds a good one. Have you had any response as yet?
I agree the blog section moved fairly steadily initially and now seems slower.

Thanks Helen..I have mastered it, so am very impressed with myself. I usually have to read instructions at least three times and then think about what I have to do next for the next ten minutes.
Your instructions were very clear Smile Smile
Two gold stars and golden time at the end of the week for you. Wink

Now I wonder what you have on offer for golden time this week. We use all our adults and they all do set up different activities and the children get to choose. That is except for those who have lost their golden time and they get to do work with the DH
Do you have a similar system?

Goodness who is the DH..They are my initials !
We have the same system in the juniors especially for years 5 and 6 because they are so difficult.
My infants are just wonderful..really well behaved so we have special time nearly every day, probably the best class I have ever had ! Smile

Deputy Head, sorry Di.
Its funny but our Nursery class this year has been the best class I've ever had too. It only takes one with a serious behavioural problem and it throws evrything out for the whole year. This year we just didn't get one.

No Smile All ours are in year 5 and 6..25% of the class are Special Needs. All of them have come in from other schools..they are a nightmare I never offer to do supply unless I know which class it is ! Smile

Well now Di, this is going to be an interesting thread, because something must account for us both having the huge SEN in Y5 and Y6 this year!! We then have a gap as Y4and Y3 and Y2 are about average. However Y1 is huge SEN plus we had about 10 EAL added part way through the year which threw everything out too.
Wonder if anyone else has the same pattern?
