Podcasts created for kids and often times by kids are emerging as valuable resources for transforming engagement and learning through listening, questioning, recording, reflecting and connecting with kids. By placing kids’ voices at the center of their work, podcast producers/hosts from Book Club for Kids, Brains On, and Buttons & Figs will share how they connect children with authors, artists, scientists and each other. The panelists will share how they create podcast episodes, how they engage kids, and how their techniques inspire creativity and learning. The panel includes an educator and librarians who will share stories about how on-demand podcast episodes can be used in the library or classroom to transform the way children engage with information, learning, and creativity. Learn how to locate and access kids podcasts and incorporate them into your library, programs, or lessons.
