Have you had your flu shot yet? You should! It seems like everyone around me is getting sick, and it’s barely the beginning of flu season! Use this great app to track flu cases in your area and educate yourself on how to avoid catching the flu.

Follow the flu as it makes its way from state to state! Get dynamic flu related news updates. Flu Tracker is designed with information from the CDC in order to promote consumer influenza education. A map feature shows weekly state by state influenza activity in the US. Additional features are an RSS Influenza newsfeed, information about flu season, symptoms, and high risk groups.

We live in a society addicted to technology. More smartphones are being used in the classroom and in our offices every day. To help you leverage the technology available to you, we explore, try and share links to apps that can help you and your students.

Every week we select a new app and share its description in our “Apps We Love” column. We do not endorse devices from any one company or receive any kind of compensation for these features. We just share links to apps that can help you teach, learn, work and grow.
