📝 About Aaron
Aaron / Youth Mentor / Learning Coach / Creative Facilitator
I want to provide a space for young people to be empowered in their learning with hands on and practical experiences that teach skills to carry into the future.
My teaching philosophy revolves around engaging young people in energized conversations that force learners to ask questions, think and form intellectual and creative opinions.
Learning to form opinions and articulate them in the art of conversation is an invaluable skill which sets us apart from others in social and professional encounters, inviting new relationships, ideas and opportunities.
My POD is focused on honing these skills within the context of a unique and independent PODcast where the members become creators and hosts, exploring topics and interests that they feel compelled to talk about. Learn more in the POD profile below...
The objective of this POD is for students to create their own PODcast from scratch, starting with the name, logo and intro song before getting into the nitty gritty of researching topics and developing ideas for discussion on the show.
Topics i envisage being discussed include world news, technology, gaming, mental health, travel, culture, science, sport, arts and any other interests that members feel impassioned to discuss.
Students are expected to research the chosen topic in their own time and prepare points, ideas and questions to prompt conversation during the 30 minute PODcast every day.
The goal of this PODcast is to develop our ability to research, extract information, form opinions and articulate them in the art of conversation. In the process we also record our PODcast conversations and have the chance to post them online just like any other PODcast out there that can rack up countless views, likes and comments.
