Young students working at a computer. Bob Sprankle is a fourth grade teacher in Wells Elementary School, ME. He has his students community building and social networking at a young age.

Each week Bob's students are given the responsibility of producing a podcast to review and highlight class activities.

"By writing, producing, and publishing their own show, my fourth grade students became linked with students and teachers from all over the world.

The windows and the walls of our classroom were blown wide open, letting the rest of the world in, offering us many opportunities in learning that wouldn't have been possible otherwise."

In the following linked podcast, Bob's students provide an overview of their project:
