Summary - New: 3rd Edition

In this unit pupils will learn how sound is digitized and stored on computers. They will learn basic sound editing techniques and how to add sound effects and mix tracks. Ways of creating different sound effects (the job of a “Foley artist”) are described. Pupils will undertake a creative project to analyse, plan, record and edit a short sound file. This could take the form of a radio advertisement or short podcast. Assessment will be by means of an Assessment Portfolio, to include a description, critical review and evidence of an advertisement planned and recorded by the pupil, and a self-evaluation.

What people say...

You have done a great job!! The resources are great and students find them very easy to understand and follow!

Robinson Zapata. Leader of ICT, Richard Challoner School

The feedback I have had from my staff are all positive. We use your material and adapt each to suit our students. It has certainly made our life easier, especially as there are so many other factors that take up our time. It’s actually the first time I have bought in resources in the last 6 years. What we like is the quality of the resources, the activities are engaging for our students and the assessment material is varied (tests as well as tick sheet) and easy for students to understand.
