We are thrilled to announce a new partnership between Boclips and The Guardian, two leading companies in the field of education and media.

The Guardian is the premier news organization for in-depth reporting and thought-provoking video content and documentaries, and here at Boclips we are excited to provide their fantastic video clips for use in education as a unique and powerful learning experience.

We look forward to sharing the wide range of video content from The Guardian, including news segments, documentaries and interviews across politics, international relations and the economy; and by aligning the videos to curriculum standards, make it easy for educators to find and use in the classroom and virtually.

We believe that this partnership is an exciting step forward for education, and we look forward to working with The Guardian to help educators bring current events and real-world reporting into the classroom, providing students with a deeper understanding of the world around them.
