How I Use It
I use Flipboard to keep up with the news and areas of interest for me. I conduct Socratic Seminars in my classroom each week, and use the app to find engaging articles to discuss with students. Since I teach 4th grade, it wouldn't be appropriate to have my students use the app, but it helps me find relevant and up-to date articles as the teacher.
I love using the app! All of my favorite news sources are collected in one area. I used to have them all bookmarked, but this streamlines the process of catching up on the news each day. I can find an article that is interesting or relevant to my students every time I look on the app, as long as I have time. It would be nice if I could add a filter so students could use it and find the articles themselves, but for now, I'll stick to keeping it as a teaching tool.
