The Dream School
The Raspberry Pi is a series of small single-board computers developed by the Raspberry Pi Foundation to promote the teaching of basic computer science in schools and in developing countries.
Geared towards engineers, tinkerers and techies, this bare-bone, credit-card sized computer serves as a tool for teaching the fundamentals of computer science.
Radio Drama Workshop
A creaking door, a sinister laugh, a thud followed by a scream in the night; these were the sounds that drew listeners into radio shows in the mid-20th century. Writers of the 1930s, 1940s, and 1950s knew how to create spine-tingling scripts that kept the audience glued to the radio each evening.
Raspberry Pi Workshop
Art is paramount! Creativity, art and innovation are embedded
in everything we do. Writing, digital video productions and
even coding require students to be creative. Our programs
help students find new interest and passions; through a series
of lesson they learn how to outline their ideas, research
supporting information via the internet and write a script for a
podcast, digital video or write the code for a video game or
Students will learn to use this minicomputer just like a desktop to do everything from browsing the internet and playing high-definition video, to making spreadsheets, word-processing, and programming.
What’s more, the Raspberry Pi is part of the maker movement! Students can connect with other students from all over the world to invent a wide array of digital maker projects, from music machines, to weather stations and tweeting birdhouses with infra-red cameras.
The shows encompassed a broad range of genres: mystery, drama, horror, suspense, science fiction, comedy, and adaptations of classic books. There was something for everyone.
The Dream School understands the power of this medium to engage students in English language arts education. Students strengthen their listening, writing, and creative skills by exploring mid-20thcentury detective and mystery radio shows and then scripting, directing, recording, and broadcasting their own podcasts.
The motivational power of allowing students to listen to and create their own radio show broadcasts produce high levels of student engagement and multiple applications of radio shows to teach lessons about drama, writing, speaking, literary elements, character development, and a host of other language arts skills.
