In Term 3 of Year 8, we introduce the students to Radio & Podcasting using Garage Band. The students are required to demonstrate their knowledge and understanding by creating their own radio programme and podcast. This unit is intended to develop the students technical skills with Garage Band.

Every sixth lesson the students sit a formal assessment and are awarded a National Curriculum level using our tailor-made assessment structure.

The skills are introduced by class demonstration, student mirroring the activity on their work stations and the key steps are supported with a range of guides and worksheets.

The formal assessments during the unit are designed to ensure that a particular competency has been achieved.
