Recognition for Radiowaves

Corby Business Academy has been named as one of just ten Chamption Radiowaves stations in the country.

The staus means the CBA Radiowaves community may be asked to cover key events, will have early access to new features and could have a case study about our own site featured on the national site.

Media Teacher Claire Howsam, who runs the CBA Radiowaves site, put the online social network forward for Champion Status.

The site has become an integral part of school life, used by the students to showcase multi-media work; by staff to provide students with extracurricular learning activities; by school reporters to give coverage of local events and to record extra events run as part of the Gifted and Talented Programme.

Miss Howsam said the site has also become a key tool in the Philosophy For Children debates that are part of the school curriculum: “Using Radiowaves to house the Academies P4C debates has been a major success”, she said.

“Using the stories and blogs to respond to key questions has meant that students can take the discussion beyond their classroom and year group to discuss these issues in more detail.”

There are 324 members of the site and to find out more visit our Radiowaves channel.
