Do you know how often your students are on social media? According to the Statista Research Department, children and young adults in North America will spend roughly 170 minutes on social media every day.
A study released by Common Sense Media showed that most teens (over 78%) believe it is important to stay current with the news of the world, but more than half of them receive their news from social media sites such as Facebook and Twitter—and 50% say they receive their news from YouTube.
The point? Students want the news, but they receive it from social media. They want video-based, brief, engaging content that covers the issues in a way that resonates with them. Meet World Watch—a daily news content source created just for students. This platform provides uniquely created, journalistically styled and biblically sound 10-minute daily videos on an app-based platform.
Once subscribed, you can provide access to World Watch to your entire school! It serves as a supplemental device for the classroom and as an informative source for your students at home.
You can secure a preview to see if World Watch is right for your school!
