Leah from leahcleary.com shared this great teacher life hack for keeping up with current events.
As a sociology and world history teacher, I need to keep up with the news, and I need to dig deeper than the front page or just three or four sources. But as a wife, mother, and teacher I simply don’t have the hours to devote to a serious study of current events.
Now, I use the free Flipboard app to conquer information overload and stay informed and organized. As I find articles and topics that I need to dig deeper into, I put them under various categories in my Flipboard creating my own custom “magazine.” It’s kind of like Pinterest, but it’s private and the entire article is right there – no clicking links.
