Thank you to Ellen Resnek, Downingtown East High School social studies teacher, for suggesting today’s website called “Breaking News Generator.” It is a great tool to use as an exit ticket while making social studies more engaging. Students upload an image and give the news slide a headline and description. Students can also brainstorm creative names of news agencies!
This tool could be used outside of a social studies curriculum; teachers could ask students to summarize key details from a text or to support vocabulary instruction. Students can also create their own image to use.
Do you have a tech tool that you want other teachers to know about? Email us at dtowntechchat.wordpress.com or post here.
