BBC News Globe

| 1 Comment

The BBC has developed what they call a “prototype” of a News Globe. It’s similar to some other sites on The Best Visually Engaging News Sites list — it has a virtual globe globe that you spin, and there are points on it. When you place your cursor on the points a short introduction to a news story based on that location shows-up, and you can click on it to go to the complete report.

I’m adding it to that “The Best…” list.

Thanks to Free Technology For Teachers for the tip.

  1. Hi Larry,
    Just a heads-up, I looked at it this morning and there were several news stories that were on the wrong continent(Africa and Iraq stories in South America,etc.) .

    I don’t know if it’s an RSS feed issue or if they are still working out the bugs to the system, but just thought I would let you know. I love the concept since I’m a big BBC New reader and this would be great to use with my students.
