Creating Your Own Project
Given the volume of information being published to the Web each day, keeping track of the latest breaking news about current events can be difficult. For this project, students will learn how to use the free application, Google Reader, to find and track topics that they are researching. This Tech Integration Project can be easily adapted and applied to any subject currently under study in the classroom.
