Google Currents Updates and Goes International
When Google Currents was released in December I immediately installed it on my Samsung Galaxy Tablet. Google Currents is a virtual magazine rack that you can read on your Android device or on your iOS device. Google Currents offers a magazine style display of content from more than 400 media distributors. Additionally, you can sync your Google Reader account to Google Currents. Any content that you sync can be read online or offline. I use Google Currents to read the news when I’m flying without an Internet connection.
Today, Google announced that Currents is now available internationally. Google Current now offers translation of text too.
Applications for Education
Using Google Currents can be a great way for students in global studies courses or any course that discusses current news to stay informed of the latest news about a wide variety of topics. Some of the content providers that could be quite useful for that are The Guardian and The Atlantic.
