Flipboard

Flipboard is a free app for iDevices that enables you to create a personalized magazine.  I have used Flipboard for over a year to organize blogs and online magazines that I like to read.  It is only recently that I started to investigate how it could be used in the classroom.

Within the Flipboard app, there are suggested blogs to add.  You can also add Twitter and Facebook feeds.  But, if you just want to provide an easy way for your students to access some engaging resources, you can find lists of online magazines and blogs for kids, like the one here, provided by KB Connected or here.  Another idea is to add your own classroom blog, or student blogs.

It’s easy to add a new resource.  When you open Flipboard, you will notice that one of the squares says, “More”.  Tap on this square, and a search window will come up.
