A 2 Minute Productivity Tip
No time to read the news? Newsmap helps. Here are tips and a quick tour.
A Fast Way to Read the News: Newsmap
Newsmap isn’t new — but perfect for a five-minute glance at the news. Here are some tips:
- When you hover over a box, it will show you the most recent headline. (Great if the box is tiny.)
- The brightness of the box shows you how breaking the news is. (Brighter means more are coming in faster, darker means that it is decreasing in the number of headlines.)
- Click Customize to fine tune how you want to view the news. (You’ll need to create an account.)
- Click the different countries across the top to see how the news looks there.
This is a must-share with current events teachers and news hounds.
