Flipboard is a news cataloging-app that finds the best articles for you based on your interests. Simply create an account and enter in your preferences, and soon, articles that interest you will be at your fingertips. You can save articles you like, and the app provides several ways to share them with friends and family. The Flipboard app covers a wide variety of topics and is excellent for social studies classes.
This app can be especially useful in history classes, when relating current events to past events. Teachers can encourage students to download this app and can determine which articles are mostly read. Once a week, teachers can discuss one specific article (the most widely read article) with the class, relating it to any ongoing or past events. Teachers can also share articles with students, assigning them to read specific articles at a particular time.
