How I Use It
I would use it to update my students on current events via audio podcasts on the site. I think this is a great resource especially for middle and high schoolers and I can see that it could become very popular for this age group.
My Take
This is great, however, I was hoping that I could use it for my 5th graders but it seems like the content is a bit too high. Is there a way that youth radio could perhaps cater this to a younger crowd? It would be a dynamic resource for students to build on their listening skills.
