The piece is called Podcasting Pupils. Here is the introduction to the documentary:
Two teachers at A. Lorne Cassidy elementary school in Stittsville are changing the way students in their classrooms learn. “Portable Radio” is their online radio podcast production that’s helping students get inspired and bringing the classroom home for parents. Midweek’s Alana Range has this documentary.
Please! The students and teachers of Portable Radio really want to hear from you. Leave a comment here or give us a call. We might even include your message on a future podcast!
