This is a site that teachers will find interesting, but it’s not one that you’d use in the primary classroom. Newsmap displays the news stories that Google News gathers together from various sources on the Internet. Instead of presenting the reports in a list it shows them graphically, colour coding them by subject and adjusting the size according to the amount of coverage the story is receiving. It’s fascinating to see which events are generating the most articles and how the perceived importance of each story varies from country to country.
