Welcome to the Alakaʻi O Kauaʻi Podcast

Alakaʻi O Kauaʻi focuses on the development of the whole child, including the academic, social, and emotional aspects of learning. One of our core beliefs is that learning is more relevant to children when it engages them in projects that help solve problems important to them and their community.

As part of their project-based learning experience, our 3rd graders created the Alakaʻi O Kauaʻi podcast, answering this Driving Question: “How can we create a podcast for Alakaʻi O Kauaʻi that effectively shares the vibrancy of our learning with our community?” It is our hope that this project will help learners understand the value of sharing ideas in the 21st century. Whether it be with our small community or with other areas of the world, we believe that making connections is a wonderful part of the human experience.

We hope you are enlightened, entertained, and informed as you listen to the Alakaʻi O Kauaʻi podcast!
