Aimed at learners of all ages; this is a whole day workshop session using Russell's own designed and manufactured school radio equipment to produce and broadcast a live radio show from your school or education establishment. Russell will work with a class sized group or bigger if possible, he will split them into teams to work on the individual components that go to make up a radio show. Live School Radio Shows typically have news, weather, sports, features and sometimes depending on any thematic based learning projects that have recently been undertaken there may be a Radio Play. This is feature packed workshop with plenty of hands-on experience. Each team will need to elect an Editor who will attend top level station manager meets with Russell and give progress reports on how show items are progressing. These are short notice Editor Meetings and team discussions and give an authentic real-life feel to the workshop. Each team is introduced to the equipment so that there is a broad understanding of what's involved in the production side of radio. Live Radio has never been this much fun.
The workshop appeals to everyone, planning, collaborating on a radio programme is a brilliant way to engage students, promote student voice and develop critical thinking skills in a safe secure environment. This is different to podcasting, this is live, high pressure, on the button radio, and there's nothing like it to motivate learners. Russell will also make his SMS Texting Service available for competitions. Your show hosts will receive live texts during their show often from Parents and other classes listening at school.
Available for all age groups and all abilities. Perfect for enrichment, wow-days, and as a reward. It is also a perfect way to experience how Live School Radio might impact on your learning and teaching, a less expensive way of trying out this brilliantly engaging technology.

Allows young people to see what's in it for them! Turns pupils and students onto learning and motivates them into participating in the group. Once this investment is made, young people enjoy coming to school.
This activity will raise aspirations, the Jobs feature is a good example, by getting a team to research and review current employment opportunities they can see what's happening in the market and start talking about their role in society.
How young people fit and take up their responsible roles in society is vital for successful participation in a 21st Century ICT rich world. Working well in teams and responding to situations under pressure are good skills to have.
By involving the wider school community, the live show can easily bring in external participants either via SMS Texts, Email, or live telephone calls during the broadcast.
Useful to compliment any themed learning activities, do a live from set in WWII, or in Victorian times, create a live Radio Play with sound effects that everyone can join in with.
This workshop can easily encompass many themes and could build upon existing work, it can also offer a diverse and media rich alternative to other methods of learning.
You may well be interested in how you can turn School Radio into a revenue generating activity. Selling adverts on your regular live shows is an easy way of generating income.

A perfect tool for celebrating achievement, enhancing learning opportunties and developing C21st communication skills.
From the outset Russell was excellent encouraging us with ideas and his natural enthusiasm and helping us meet our aim to have the whole school involved (no mean feat!).
Russell sat with the key organising team to lead us by the hand and help us plan our day. The pupils and staff worked hard to make sure that everyone was involved. It was great to see the infant pupils interviewing former pupils and staff on their ipads. The enthusiasm and motivation generated was fantastic.
As the great day arrived there was a buzz of excitement. Russell came in on the day and ensured that all was ready for the big broadcast, ensuring that the pre-recorded material was ready to be mixed with the live presentation.
It went down a storm with Russell declaring that this was one of his best shows ever. Who would have thought that you could get so much curriculum work from this, from speaking and listening to writing to planning.
Thoroughly recommend this.

Russel came in to give us a whole day's inset as part of the purchasing cost and he was a very good teacher. The children and I learnt so much about the equipment and radio techniques, and I felt very confident afterwards that I could teach this to the rest of the school.
I have initially trialled the equipment with my year 6 classes, and now intend to have a regular lunchtime club with children vertically grouped across the whole school. Many children returned an electronic audition to me, and I am pleased to say that this group will begin work next week. They will broadcast live across the school for 30 minutes every lunchtime, and they will be in charge of what goes on the show and putting it together.
I know that this radio system will be an excellent purchase for the school for years to come and I cannot recommend it highly enough. If your school can afford it, buy it, sit back, let the kids go with it and watch them flourish!
Russell has a natural rapport with children and is able to motivate them to achieve more than they thought possible - the wide grin on their faces said it all! Adults also benefited from the training, which not only taught the skills needed to run the Radio Station, but also allowed them to explore innovative ideas relevant to the school.
I would thoroughly recommend both Russell's training sessions and radio workshops.
I would fully recommend this workshop to any schools interested in doing this kind of thing. It was a big experience for the children and one they will never forget.

As before, Russell's advice beforehand allowed us to plan the day well, with a mix of years 2,3&6 split over two shorter sessions. This worked fantastically and the older pupils relished the opportunity to take the lead within their groups.
Thanks to Russell's endless enthusiasm and encouragement, both broadcasts were a great success and all the children left with huge smiles, feeling incredibly proud of themselves.
I cannot recommend highly enough. The difference we saw in some of our pupils was immense. Many thanks Russell.
I cannot recommend Russell Prue too highly.
Many thanks to him for a thoroughly enjoyable day.
