Student Takeover - "Our Lives And Tech"
For this episode we worked closely with students from schools in Johannesburg in South Africa, Virginia in the United States, and London in the UK. The student were given a simple brief to produce a story about how technology has impacted their lives. In the first story Hannah and Csarina abandon social media and get their news from a more 'traditional' method. They did something they've never done before. They bought a newspaper. Find out what surprised them and what they learned by flicking through the pages of a British daily newspaper. The second story is a piece of fiction, written, acted and produced by Sophie, Justin and Ethan. Growing up under the shadow of a nuclear power plant, the students wanted a story that helped the listener get a sense of the fears they've lived with all their lives. The final story comes from Tebogo, Amo, Tariq, Zewande, Lethabo and Zanele who speak to a teacher and students from their school about how technology has improved the way they learn and the way they communicate. They also discuss some of the ways technology has had a negative impact on their lives. For full show notes go to neverthelesspodcast.com
