Google News Timeline
Joyce Valenza posted this great resource at EdCamp Philly last weekend. It's called Google News Timeline, and it appears to be a hybrid of Google Squared and Google News. It presents the news in a spreadsheet-like format by day. It provides the time the story was published, the source, a photo, available videos, and a brief summary of the story. I think it is a great way to quickly review current events in your classroom. I also think it is a great way to enhance universal design since the information is neatly organized, searchable, and easy to read. Enjoy!
