Early Childhood Podcasts for Students and Teachers to Enhance Learning

Podcasts have become a new way of learning. As teachers, leaders, childcare providers etc, we must commit to being lifelong learners.  Today it is easier than ever to learn by listening to colleague’s, veteran and even new to the profession, by turning on a podcast. A podcast allows you to listen and learn in the car, while you are working, at the gym, on an airplane and even out on a walk.  There are thousands of podcasts out in the world today and when it comes to early childhood and working with children there are great ones.

Here are some you may want to try out:

The Inspiring Early Childhood Educator | a podcast by Marcia Nicole

Podcasts are not only for adult learners. We can also use podcasts in our classrooms with our students. Being a teacher, I am always trying to research new ways to get my students involved in using their imagination, listening, and comprehension skills, while also learning to form visual images or “brain movies” in their minds. This is where creativity, engagement, enrichment, and fun come into teaching! Podcasts can do so many great things for students, like build confidence, expose them to new and different genres, provide access to numerous subject matters to meet even the most distinct interests, and, most importantly, engage students in literacy activities that will pique their interest and enjoyment in books and reading.

More new podcasts that will be coming soon are FloozevilleGoKidGo The ShowFamily Game Show, and Whale of a Tale. These podcasts make you smile, and some might scare you a bit, but they all have a great story for children and adults alike—I honestly have found myself listening to them solo! GoKidGo shares many wonderful educator resources for the podcasts that go along with the stories your children are listening to.
