      • Did you know that there are “radio signals” for content that is on the Internet?
      • This means that you don’t have to go to a website (concert or radio station) to know what is happening or what has been updated (music).
    • Radio Signals = RSS Feeds Photo: http://www.flickr.com/photos/60236052@N00/145053162/ = Music on the Radio Internet Content

    • Me and My Interests I have a lot of interests. I am lucky because I know about RSS Feeds and Feed Readers. I won’t go crazy, lose my job, or grow old trying to keep up with my interests. I tune into the signal, and the information comes to me.
    • RSS Feed
      • The RSS Feed is the radio signal. You have to look to see if it available.
      • RSS Feeds often appear in the web address bar.
      • Go to www.trinityatl.org and look for the RSS icon in the web address bar.

    • There’s an RSS Feed!
      • If I can tune into this RSS Feed (radio signal) with my Feed Reader (radio), then I don’t have to come back to this page to see if there are updates on the Trinity School home page.
