Radiooooo brings together music from around the world and organizes it by decade, beginning in 1900 through present day. Listeners simply click on a country and select a decade; the music will then begin playing. The “taxi mode” allows the listener to select multiple countries and decades. Users do not need an account if they just want to listen to music, but they will need one if they want to upload music. Radiooooo is available as an app for both iOS and Android. Cost: Free

Those in the path of totality-parts of Oregon, Idaho, Wyoming, Montana, Nebraska, Iowa, Kansas, Missouri, Illinois, Kentucky, Tennessee, Georgia, and North and South Carolina—will see the moon completely eclipse the sun. Observers in the rest of the contiguous United States will see a partial solar eclipse. The solar eclipse is a perfect teachable moment for students. Whether you plan to watch live with your students or plan lessons around the eclipse, here are a few resources for teaching about the solar eclipse.
