There is a new tech platform that is aiming to help youth get an early start in the creative space of podcasting.
Disctopia is a podcast hosting and streaming service that’s on a mission to help curated artists, podcasters, film directors, and content creators who seek creative freedom with simple merchandising integration.
Independent creators can make a steady income through the platform’s subscription-based service model, collecting 100% of their revenue generated.
The service recently announced its new partnership with Charlotte Lab Schools in North Carolina to help provide students an opportunity to learn the skills necessary in these skilled areas.
Charlotte Lab Schools serves about 850 students in grades K-9 with the goal to grow to 1,000 up to 12th grade.
The tuition-free public charter school aims to prepare students with STEAM education skills for careers of the future.
Students will have access to mobile studios and kits with instructions that will instruct them on how to operate and jumpstart their podcasts.
Teachers will also have access to the mobile podcast studio through the Charlotte Lab Schools library or media center.
The goal is for teachers and students to discuss topics that will help them develop and push their interests forward.
As of now, Charlotte Lab Schools are some of the first in the region to have access to a Podcast Education System solution.
Disctopia plans to unveil this educational podcast technology with more schools in the upcoming months.
Disctopia CEO and founder Patrick Hill issued a statement saying, “Podcasting has an important role to play in the future of education. Through this partnership and many more, we hope to unlock the potential of many classrooms by opening a creative space for teachers and learners to share and discover new ideas. We believe this will help teachers push through the challenges of a modern classroom.”
