You Can Now Create Flipboard Magazines On The Web

flip

Flipboard has been a popular app for creating web magazines — you pick your high-interest topics, choose from among the zillion articles Flipboard collects, and you’ve then got an easily “shareable” personalized newspaper.

The only problem, and it’s a big one for educators who want to use it with their students, has been that it’s been mobile-only — you couldn’t use it on the Web.

Until today.

You can now use Flipboard on the Web.

I’m now adding it to The Best Sites For Creating Personalized “Newspapers” Online.

Teaching Tolerance Offers Teachers Free Documentary On Selma-To-Montgomery March

Teaching Tolerance is offering a free documentary on the Selma-to-Montgomery march — a perfect follow-up to watching the Oscar-nominated “Selma” film.

The free-to-teachers kit includes:

  • The documentary, Selma: The Bridge to the Ballot (40 minutes);
  • viewer’s guide to help you plan how you’ll teach about the Selma-to-Montgomery marches, the Voting Rights Act of 1965 and voting issues today;
  • A timeline of activities and events leading up to and following the marches;
  • A map of Alabama illustrated with locations significant to the voting rights struggle.

I know I’m not alone in using great resources, including free films, from Teaching Tolerance often over the years…
