Create Your Own Digital Magazines on Flipboard for Android
Last month the popular digital magazine app Flipboard added an option for iPad users to create their own digital magazines to share through the app. Today, Flipboard brought that same option to Android.
To create your own Flipboard magazine you have to first create a free Flipboard account. Then install the Flipboard bookmarklet in your browser (Firefox, Chrome). After you have the bookmarklet installed you can click it whenever you find something you want to add to one of your Flipboard magazines. You can also send items to your magazines from withing the Flipboard app as you read through your feeds. To do that just click the “+” icon while reading an article in Flipboard. You can create public and private magazines for as many topics as you like. For example, you could create a magazine about teaching mathematics and a magazine about school administration.
Joe O’Brien wrote a great post about how he’s using Flipboard magazines with his students. I recommend reading his post here.
