Zite is just right....

If you have an Apple smartphone or iPad, Android devices or Windows 7 enabled devices, then you can download the application.  What is Zite you may ask?  Well, basically it's a self-generating personalized magazine.  Simply enter a topic of interest into Zite (no limits) and then be amazed as it finds the most up to date material available on the web related to that topic.  As teachers, this could be used to introduce units of interest, or maybe research.  It's an amazing tool.
