There are lots of great ways to explore current events and I’ve shared some great free apps for accessing multimedia informational text. One of my favorite news apps that I use at home and school is Watchup. This free app allows you to create your own news program by choosing short clips from different news sources (EuroNews, AP, PBS, etc.).
I love customizing any tool to fit the need of my students and Watchup is a fantastic free app that allows you to do just that!
Use this app with my Common Core aligned iPad lesson plan on current events!
