Russell Prue interviews Havering’s very own radio star Penny Patterson
A dear friend to the Hsis Computing and eSafety Team, Russell Prue has recently launched a new app ‘Anderton Tiger Radio’ broadcasting 24 hours a day to the education community. Russell tells us all about it here…
“I’ve been broadcasting on the Internet Radio since 2008. Listeners usually come to the live stream through a link on Twitter or Facebook or initially through a link on my webpage but this isn’t always possible and with the increase of mobile listening I thought it was time to get an App! My Android App went live last year and just a week ago I submitted my iPhone App to iTunes for approval. Today, I’m published, there are costs of course each month for us to keep the App live, but our listeners have been asking for it for a year. Anderton Tiger Radio is live 24hrs a day with a mix of non-stop interviews, student bands and chat about issues affecting education and young people. The programmed rolling schedule is interrupted for live events and to air student workshops, check out our schedule at www.AndertonTiger.com/Listen We’re at BETT next year broadcasting from the Toshiba Stand and you’ll be able to listen through the App on your iPhone or Android device. Download the free App and let us know what you think, there’s always something interesting on the show and you can comment live using the App too.”

Schools can also benefit from discounts on tickets for group bookings through Tickets for Schools.

ICT Excellence Awards 2008 launched
Becta has launched the ICT Excellence Awards 2008 to seek out the best and brightest schools that are using technology to help learners achieve. As young people become more and more digitally minded, schools have to raise their game to keep children engaged in the classroom. The ICT Excellence Awards aims to identify and reward schools throughout the UK approaching ICT in outstanding or innovative ways, benefiting their whole community both inside and outside the school building. By recognising whole-school best practice, these awards are closely aligned with Becta’s self-review framework and the ICT Mark. While rewarding the school as a whole, there will be a focus within the awards on those individuals leading change within the school and making an impact across it. This year there will be eight national awards, across five categories, with winners receiving a cash prize to spend on ICT equipment, provision or training.The deadline for entries is 30 April 2008. Schools and organisations that are shortlisted for an ICT Excellence Award 2008 will be visited by judges during June, July and September 2008. Winners will be announced at an awards ceremony in November 2008. Details on the categories and how to apply can be found here: Link
