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.
Hi to all Youth Radio Friends. This is our first podcast from the Eagle Team at Eupora Elementary School. We are located in north central Mississippi, half way between our capitol, Jackson, MS, and Memphis, TN. We shared things we love about Mississippi and what you might do while visiting the hospitality state. We are looking forward to hearing from you.
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?
Puerto Rico (working on it)
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.
