Radio For Kids, By Kids
I hope that conference-goers can find time to attend one of my Friday presentations of Radio For Kids, By Kids. It’s all about podcasting, the trendy way for people to subscribe to audio content that can be automatically downloaded to a computer or mobile device.
Students at my elementary school have been making their own podcasts for over a year. The podcast is called Radio WillowWeb and it is an online audio program by students in grades two through five. Each podcast is about a different topic of study. There are shows about subjects like Japan, electricity, Native Americans, the Constitution, space, and respect. These fun and informative programs are engaging to listen to because Radio WillowWeb follows a format where a host introduces a variety of segments. Before attending Radio For Kids, By Kids, it will be helpful if you have listened to at least one episode of Radio WillowWeb. The episode are all good, so take your pick.
There are several different ways to listen to a podcast. You can listen right in your web browser by clicking on an episode from this page. You can listen directly in iTunes by clicking here. Once in iTunes, you can sync and listen on an iPod if you like. Or, if you use one of the many programs to "catch" podcasts, then here is the RSS feed. Really, you can listen to a podcast on anything that can play an MP3 file.
Radio For Kids, by Kids will be presented Friday from 10:45 AM to 11:30 AM in the New Orleans Ballroom and repeated from 1:45 until 2:30 in the same location. I hope to see you there!
