Gracias to Qwest, DVE received a grant last spring (2008) for an imac, 18 iPods, software, speakers, and a docking cart to sync the iPods. Visit our site where you can download or listen to many of our podcasts we have created with the help of Qwest. Our podcasts actually won a KidCast Podcast award earlier this year. Many of our favorites are the podcuentos created by Mr. Juan Tejeda.
