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)

Students in Mississippi used the concept of “found poems” to create a series of podcasts for novels that they have been reading. Listen in as they share their writing and understanding of the novels:

Hi Ya’ll From Mississippi

Posted by dogtrax on November 13, 2006

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.

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.
