Your new ‘How we Express Ourselves’ unit focuses on:
Understanding advertising helps us to make informed choices.
During ICT, you will create a radio ad for your product using Audacity and the royalty free music from the Media drive on the school server. Sound effects may also be downloaded from websites I will direct you to. You will learn how to:

- Save audio clips from websites
- Create an audio voice over to ‘sell’ product.
- Export final radio ad so it can be played elsewhere.
Your ads will be assessed using a rubric on the following categories:
* time management
You will need to use your knowledge of advertising techniques to create a suitably persuasive advertisement. Once you have a plan, you will need to record your voiceover using Audacity.
