Website Wednesday: Breaking News Generator

by Kristie Burk, DASD Coordinator of Cyber and Blended Learning

downloadThank 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.
