Many of these apps you cannot do much with, other than "Read the News" - news is always good to know. It could be great way to present your current events. But there is no good way to "turn it in". UNLESS you have your own "Device" and you e-mail the story to your teacher. If you can find the URL you could turn it in using CANVAS. TED is not necessarily current news but is trendy information.
My Suggestions. Teachers pick your favorite app and learn it well enough to show to students. Have students save news and comment on Twitter with hashtags. Most of these apps also "Open in Safari". From there use the link to turn in current events via Canvas. Otherwise students may just cruise through these apps and never really get to "The news".
