Ranaa School Podcast
The Ranaa School Podcast basically reflects kids understanding and grasp of the different topics we study in class. The joy in their voices reflects the interest and engagement during classes. The confidence reflects their commitment to the work. Weekly, we try to record short interviews, where kids ask each other questions regarding the task/activity completed the following day. This could be making a game in Scratch, sharing the code, reading the code, explaining the process, sharing key words learned during the activity etc
What I have felt is over the weeks kids have become more confident, their reading skills have improved in English (can read code easily), speaking has improved in Urdu (kids first language is Pushto), . Their questioning skill has improved, they can explain better, can use technical word with ease, share even in front of a guest, shyness has reduced to a much greater extent.
Every week different pair of kids record their podcasts in Audacity and then these are uploaded on the podbean website. At the moment we have 18 episodes uploaded on the Ranaa School Podcast, which can be accessed by clicking on the link below.Ranaa School Podcast
