Listening is powerful.
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.
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!
