Ever notice that good stories get better student engagement? Research actually shows that a meaningful story impacts listening behavior. Well told stories about what’s happening in the real world challenge students to think, and are relevant to their lives. And that’s a formula for authentic engagement!
We work with the best journalism and storytelling organizations. We are proud to partner with NPR and other worldclass podcast and public radio producers to bring their stories to the classroom.
The best stories connect with students emotionally while they are learning. That connection improves knowledge retention and gets students talking. This story about the Lost Boys is one of our favorites!
Listenwise does the hard work of finding the podcasts that will work best in the classroom. We create curriculum-aligned collections that illustrate the topics you need to teach. As well as selecting a daily current event to make it easy to bring the outside world into the classroom. All of them are tagged and searchable to find just the right piece when you need it!
