A Month of College Teaching Tips - Tip #4 : Using Hubii to Gain a Different Perspective on Current Events


My daily newspaper routine usually includes reading the Fort Worth Star Telegram (paper format), listening to NPR, and occasionally listening to the BBC. Unfortunately, this is not a well-rounded approach to getting the news (to gain a world-wide perspective).

As a result, I might start using Hubii. This website enables users to discover newspaper articles by browsing an interactive map.

Pros: The stories are timely and the graphics are crisp!

Cons: The websites try to convince users to track their location. :(
