How I Use It
To be aware of what is going on in the world quickly. Because Flipboard is on my phone, I regularly flip through news while waiting in the check out line at Whole Foods or even when stopped at a red light.
My Take
I use Flipboard to stay aware of trends beyond the silos in which I live. I am a middle school educator and keep up with information about education and middle school on Flipboard through Twitter. Flipboard also allows me to keep up with news about technology, design, photography, cooking, and San Francisco using Flipboard. I could imagine using it w/ students to encourage them to keep up with a wide range of news. Teens could "curate" their own magazine of news that inspires them or excites them.
