An e-mail from Spotlight on Digital Media and Learning just alerted me that Youth Radio has won a 2011 Peabody Award for its Trafficked! series, an investigation broadcast on NPR, including first-person accounts by teen victims in the sex trade.
More from Spotlight:
Youth Radio is a recent recipient of a Learning Lab Award in the 2010 Digital Media and Learning Competition for its Mobile Action Lab, through which young people are developing mobile apps that serve community needs.
A new book—“ Drop That Knowledge: Youth Radio Stories”—offers resources and behind-the-scenes accounts of youth media production. Sarah wrote at Spotlight that the book is “sure to become an important resource on youth media production, consumption, and participatory learning.”
