Quick Current Event Searches Using Twitter and Google News

A response to a teacher who is seeking a quick, efficient way for students to discover current environmental issues.

The Response

If you want an easy and CURRENT way to find resources on Environmental Issues WITHOUT creating log in information you have two options.

First, the 15 Environmental Problems resource will help to start researching correct topics.  Using these words will guide the students.

Second, students travel to Twitter Search - you can put this link in Canvas.  Students will type in their topic and great and informational things will show up.  When I searched Twitter for Global Warming I found this

Third, have students use and again have students use the "search words" found in the first link I gave you.

Searching Ocean Acidification revealed this for me.


All of this can be accessed by students using the Safari App.
