Internet Radio

Recommended Posts

I have had this idea that the next vehicle for schools publicising themselves to their local community should be an Internet radio station. Most schools have a website that provides information to parents and students about the running of the school and the curriculum on offer. Some have started to create of a digital curriculum and have students creating their learning material.

Could this be supplemented by a schools own web radio?

Is Internet radio 'an untapped treasure' as recently suggested by Glenys Hart in the December edition of Educational Computing and Technology?

I have been encouraging teacher in my own school to consider the potential of in-house Internet radio programmes being made available to students and learners in the local community.

Here is an Internet radio station which I have been running fo a few years. Not geared to the curriculum :rolleyes:

This is very interesting. I am teachers in other subject areas would be interested in this. Is it possible to post it in other subject areas?

Sounds like an interesting idea - my computer is too old and slow for it to be a useful medium at present though! I'd be interested to hear how to set something like this up and also of any schools that are currently involved in such a project.
