"The children behind Portable Radio are a whole lot more articulate than I can remember being in elementary school. They quite obviously scripted their audio segments before they began recording. But it’s clear that they’re thinking in full paragraphs, not the sound bites that pass for business strategy or the monosyllables that substitute for political debate in adult circles."

Mitchell Beer wrote this post after the latest Portable Radio P.O.V.was broadcast CBC radio’s Ottawa Morning last week. Mrs. Smith’s students took on the topic of the Apple iPad that was just announced.
Congratulations to Mrs. Smith’s grade 5s for proving that kids do have a voice and people are listening. You are making an impact!
Thank you, Mr. Beer, for taking the time to write about us.
