Al Jazeera’s “Because Facts” Is Video Explainer Series

| 0 comments

Al Jazeera’s “AJ” division publishes, among other things, a video explainer series on current events called “Because Facts.”

You can see all sixty of them here, and I’ve embedded their most recent one below.

Anytime I show videos from media organizations that are funded by governments, as Al Jazeera is, I point that fact out to students.

Some of their Explainer videos are substantially tilted towards a progressive agenda, which I generally agree with personally. However, I probably wouldn’t use all of them in the classroom. Others are fairly objective. You probably want to be sure to watch any one first prior to showing it to students.

I’m adding it to The Best Online “Explainer” Tools For Current Events.
