How I Use It
I use flipboard in a couple of different ways. First, it is an easy to use, fast means to collect online sources. Second, I can have the students add comments to each article to summarize or paraphrase the information. Then, we can examine the same story subject in a different source to discuss the rhetorical strategies employed by each author.
My Take
Flipboard is a wonderful app that works on all platforms (best with ipad). It allows students to easily collect a variety of digital sources into a e-magazine. I use it as an easy tool for reviewing student sources.
