Here are some of our educational projects:
The Lycée Français’s 4th graders (58 students) and their teachers, together with KXSF’s DJ Fari, produced a 20 minute audio documentary on their 3-day California Gold Rush educational program to Coloma. For this project each student wrote a paragraph and recorded their voices. We also had done a lot of field recording during the 3-day trip.
KXSF 102.5 FM presents its yet even younger radio host: Dj Panda, 9, hosting a half hour show every Saturday morning from 10 am to 10:30 am called: Chop Chop Lollipop, the show is rebroadcast every Friday at 5:30 pm. Dj Panda has been hosting his show since the age of 6 and half.

Their audio projects are then aired on KXSF. Currently these projects are aired on the show Stories Uncovered, Saturdays at 1:00 pm or on Francofun Saturdays at 12pm

Special Program on Kraut Out Loud – Thursday October 12, 2017
German International School of Silicon Valley (GISSV) Emeryville Campus.
Over the course of three weeks, the 5th and 6th graders have been hard at work to produce a podcast on a German cultural topic, which is ready to be broadcasted on SFCR Thursday, October 12th. The show Kraut Out Loud that usually focuses on music produced and or released in Germany, Austria, or Switzerland on San Francisco Community Radio (SFCR) makes room for the students’ work. The interdisciplinary project-based learning unit met two important 21st century skills embedded in the Ethics and I.T. curricula. On the one hand, the project helped to develop students’ intercultural skills about their German heritage and the school they are attending, and on the other hand it afforded an increase in their media literacy skills. The students’ products on a German topic of their choice range from highlighting German baked goods to talks about sports, Berlin and politics.
