ROOTS WITH WINGS: Building Technology & Communication Skills and Fostering Resiliency with Youth
in Floyd County, Virginia

In 2015, Radford University will participate in the ROOTS WITH WINGS: Floyd County, Virginia Place-based Education Oral History Project to impart skills to build and strengthen the capacity of Floyd County's youth—as well as Radford University student mentors—to compete in the global economy. Radford students will teach state-of-the-art technological skills, foster communication skills appropriate for a variety of audiences, and promote interest in higher education among high-school students. Outcomes will include, among other items, videoed interviews of four elderly Floyd County residents, complete transcriptions and content logs of interviews, digitized files of photographs, workshop learning exercises, and final student papers.
