Project Ideas

Presents current news visually, based on what's "important" on Google.

Put newsmap on the board as students arrive for an anticipatory set

Use newspapers from foreign countries to support studies of those areas of the world, or to examine how point-of-view influences reporting

Provides news (color-coded) in different categories (health, world, national, sports, etc.)

News is available from newspapers in dozens of different countries.

Shading within each color shows timeliness of news (ten minutes, up to an hour, more than an hour)

Customize to choose which countries and categories of news you want to see

Customize just for your subject area (sports news for PE, Health, Business for Economics...)

Check these boxes to choose news categories

Click on "customize" to choose nationalities

Different countries and categories allow users to customize newsmap to their needs
