Newspaper: Valpo Our City Project

NWI Times ScreenshotOur City Podcast is in the news! The Northwest Indiana Times published Nothing But 'Net For Valpo Project. The reporter, Elizabeth Holmes, visited Central Elementary School in Valparaiso, Indiana recently. Fourth and second grade students were working with high schoolers to create a podcast for the Our City series of podcasts by kids. The article may be short, but the school has some really big ideas for inter-grade collaboration on podcasts.

The episode for Valparaiso will be available soon (and I can't wait to hear it myself). Subscribe to Our City Podcast in iTunes by clicking here and it will automatically be downloaded to your computer when the show is available.

Remember, you're welcome to create an edition of Our City Podcast with the kids you know. There are plenty of resources to help you along, including a planning guide to help students with segments. Simply send the finished sound file with some information to me and I'll do the publishing. Participating in Our City is a great way to try out podcasting!
