ISITGOONAIR

Isitgoonair started its activities on 22 May 2007. It is the school webradio which was founded by Mr. Gaetano Strano and Mrs. Eva Zigon together with all the students, teachers and technicians who worked on it.
The first transmissions were podcasts of different types: interviews, news, musical programmes, book and film reviews, reports of field trips and also some short lessons.
The increasing spread of videos on the Internet (ex. YouTube and others) and the possibility to buy cheap hardware and software to be used to make videos, have turned the webradio into a webTV.Today isitgoonair is mainly a school on demand WebTv which produces videos. On some occasions some live transmissions via streaming have been experimented.

The activity has been accomplished thanks to the
Fondazione Cassa di Risparmio di Gorizia

4 in 1

The project 4in1 is the evolution of Isitgooair-webradioTV, which is getting bigger and becoming a learning environment for the pupils.
The new project mainly aims at improving the teaching-learning process with the use of tools which are more suitable to our digital native students so to help them to reach their formative success.
In its official presentation on 28 January 2011 it included 4 sections: webradio, webTV, elearning and social network.
At the moment at school some pilot classes are using tablets (MLearning class, 2.0 Cl@ss) and this has led to a reorganization of the learning environment, which now includes: ePortfolio, Mobile, Social and Tech.

Some meaningful events in the history of Isitgoonair

Isitgoonair starts its activities
2006/2007

Isitgoonair starts its activities

The idea of a school webradio was introduced to the school staff by Mr. Gaetano Strano on 16 June 2006 when he illustrated a three-year project named: "Podcasting: from web radio to digital learning".

The project mainly aimed at improving the teaching-learning process through the use of new digital technologies.

He was supported by Fondazione Cassa di Risparmio and the Province of Gorizia that gave the possibility to use some rooms which used to be part of the school caretaker’s lodging to create a recording studio.

During the first year (2006/2007) the work was shared between the two founders of the webradio: Mrs. Eva Zigon (who prematurely passed away on 20 May 2008 and to whom the radio is now entilted) and Mr. Gaetano Strano. Other teachers then, Mr. Marco Corbatto, Mr. Maurizio Silvestri and a technician, Mr. Paolo Buttignon, developed the website and helped with recordings and the editing of the first videos.

The start of the activities

We like to remember Zuf de Zur, Giuann Shadai, Giulia Daici, Soul Circus, Giovanni Maier, Doppia Personalità, RAM, DolceMania.

The team

During the years a lot of students, teachers and technicians (among these Mr. Marco Donda is worth mentioning for his helpful support) and also freelancers (i.e. the speaker-dj Barbara Urizzi and the film director Matteo Oleotto) have contributed to the development of such an innovative project.

Some members of the team represented Isitgoonair at the National Festival of School Radios in Lecco and was organized by Radio Cristal and by Gruppo Ragazzi e Cinema in Oggiono in 2009/2010.

At the end of every school year, a celebration is organized at school during which the most relevant products of the radio are presented and some prizes in memory of Mrs. Zigon are given to some students.
