Let's start an FM radio station in your school. Live radio with a real audience. At least let's get started with an internal Intranet service. I'm Mike Kinnaird and as a ex-BBC radio producer of 15 years plus, I've just about got the hang of it! So let me pass on my experiences to you with these podcasts.Using audio across the curriculum is what I'm about. We can take your lessons to a different level, creating highly customizable resources that you can share with colleagues and create jointly with students. Everything from maths to geography, citizenship to history. Audio resources are cheap and fast to turnaround and recording and editing them well is not the secret so many would have you believe. Now add that to School FM Radio - even internal radio, and we have a seriously powerful tool that students respond to immediately. I know because I've tried it again and again -- that's what these podcasts are about. Hints and tips for you to get started and what the advantages, and crucially, the disadvantages are. Enjoy listening and tell me what you'd like us to talk about.
