Audio Podcasting Workshops

Audio Experience 

Audio Experience Half day

This workshop starts round sounds and making sound effects and audio stings. The children will make their own sound effects from objects available in the classroom. 

We look at the sound recording kit we are using and discover how we can record the best sound by using the kit in certain ways and different locations.   

The children will learn what a good vox pop is and we will record one (or more if time allows) The subject matter for the session can be discussed in advance and fit into class topics.  

The children will be planning/ scripting/ recording (as a team) and editing their own material.
