I just recently ran into Current TV
and see that it likely has terrific potential for student learning, especially in the area of Language Arts. It bills itself as "The TV Network Created by the People Who Watch It," and it seems to have some really good news items on there, despite the fact that these people are not professional journalists (of course). In a world of increasingly one-sided news channels, perhaps these types of shows will begin to turn the tide back to a democracy in the US?
I know I'm out on a political limb here, so will begin to inch back in...I simply want to know if you all can share ideas for how you've used Current TV in your classes to promote various academic skills?
