I’m adding the Breaking News Map to The Best Visually Engaging News Sites

The Breaking News Map automatically moves through a map of the world to…breaking news spots and gives you a short summary of the story and a link where you can get more.  You can set the speed of the movement to your preference, and you can also pick the subjects the stories will cover.

I could see how it could be an engaging way for English Language Learners and other students to keep up with the news.
