University Prep at Pittsburgh Milliones
In spring 2010 SLB had the exciting experience of instructing a “Storytelling Through Technology” class with 7th and 9th graders at University Prep-Pittsburgh Milliones in the Hill District. Students gained experience with microphones, portable recording devices, and audio editing software. They also learned the art of the interview as well as how audio can be used as a tool to further their understanding of the world around them. During the year students used these acquired skills to interview their teachers and create professional radio pieces.
