The amount of educational content available from the BBC is simply amazing. No matter how many times I visit the various BBC websites, it seems like there is always something new for me to learn about. This evening, through a link on Silvia Tolisano’s Langwitches blog, I learned about the BBC’s World News for Children podcasts. The daily podcasts are roughly four to five minutes long and targeted to an audience of children seven to fourteen years old. The scripts from each podcast are made available for every new episode.
Applications for Education
These daily news podcasts from the BBC could be an excellent resource for anyone teaching current events. To keep kids reading, you could have them read the scripts while listening to the podcasts.
