A Collective Welcome to Youth Radio, Year Two

Posted by dogtrax on December 1, 2007



Our launch of the second year of Youth Radio is now underway, as students in a handful of participating schools (Mississippi, Colorado, Michigan and New Jersey) recorded a greeting and sent those files to the Norris School in Massachusetts, where students edited them into one official Welcome podcast.

Take a listen to our greetings

(Two Norris students use Audacity to do some sound editing on the “Welcome to Youth Radio” files)

Howdy From Colorado

Posted by dogtrax on October 30, 2006


Howdy Youth Radio listeners!

This is the first podcast from your friends at The Odyssey School. We are a K-8 Expeditionary Learning school located just east of the Rocky Mountains in Denver, Colorado. Our crew is called Specraloud. Check out our crew website.

Listen to our podcast about Colorado.

You’ll have to excuse some parts of our broadcast. We haven’t mastered recording our voices yet…

Starting Up the Radio

Posted by dogtrax on October 1, 2006


We are hoping to create a community of student voices throught this Weblog site in which audiocasts/podcasts will play a critical role in the ways in which young people can express their ideas, interact with each other and consider issues on both local and global scales. In doing so, we hope to plant some seeds of understanding among them.

Their voices need to be heard and this site is being designed to help them do that.

So, where are we from?

So far:

  • Massachusetts
  • California
  • Washington DC
  • Colorado
  • Mississippi
  • Puerto Rico (working on it)
  • Phillipines (hopefully)
  • and more will be listed soon.

As a first step, you can listen to students at Norris Elementary School in Southampton on the first day of school this year as they consider either the things they are looking forward to or the things they are worrying about.
