Educational Potential
A RSS reader allows the students to read news from a great variety of sources using only one app and without entering in each web page each day. It’s very usefull for a professional for be updated with news of their specialty.

We can suggest to the students sources of quality information. Ways to avoid the mediatic intoxication of false news in social networks and different points of view of the same event. It can improve their critical thinking.

Almost every blog or newspaper in Internet can be followed with this app. They have to choose carefully to avoid some risks.

It’s very usefull for language classes because students can read news in the original language and if they are used to using this app, they could read a lot in other languages about interesting topics for them.

I think it can be very interesting as a tool in some subject, but with students of the last levels of secondary education that can use the computer better and have had classes on how to work with web contents and computer. The teacher has to learn the tool too, but it will become a helpful tool in some matters of secondary education.
