There are seven worksheets and five homework sheets in this unit.
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's included in the toolkit?
The currently available units have been written to satisfy the new National Curriculum for Computing, they are designed for teaching at KS3 but individual lessons in some units may also be appropriate for teaching Key Stages 2 or 4, particularly where Year 10 students may not previously have been exposed to certain topics.
We had been looking around for some KS3 computing resources for some time. However, we couldn't find any that were suitable and value for money. The PG Online units provided us with exactly what we were looking for to get our new computing curriculum up and running. Each unit is designed to provide a complete solution including; comprehensive lesson plans, editable presentations and an end of unit assessment. Purchasing these units have saved us valuable time and has helped us to create a curriculum which is both easy to follow and engaging.

I am very impressed with the quality of the lesson plans, other resources and the presentation of the documents. We are giving our KS3 a curriculum a complete overhaul and your projects make up 90% of the new lessons.
