Equal access to information is an important issue in education today. The issue involves everything from equity in facilities, monies spent per student, access to technology, test scores, time, to name a few. But the web is expanding exponentially and the ability of a single student or teacher to access what he or she needs in an efficient manner becomes more difficult every day. Once found, a RSS feed will keep the subscriber up to date on what is happening at the source site.

Aggregators shared on a social bookmarking site like del.icio.us connect people to others with similar interests. The access to knowledge becomes a shared commodity rather than individual property. Teachers, students, parents, community members, school boards, and administration can stay apprised of what is happening using the auto-notice feature of RSS: Whenever a tagged site is changed, the members of the meshed network formed by RSS are notified.
