My Live School is a not for profit internet radio network. It allows any UK school to install free software and broadcast live radio shows to the world. Teachers use My Live School to engage pupils with their learning by making any subject fun and providing purpose. For example, instead of asking a child to just write for the sake of writing, teachers could ask pupils to write a play that can be acted out live on air to a real audience. My Live School provides learning purpose and reward.
My Live School delivers an end-to-end radio broadcast solution supporting learners aged 4 to 16. With your support, we will provide;
- A child frendly, content regulated broadcast platform
- A teaching tool that works in-line with school online safety policies
- An audience for the pupils involved
- A free software studio
- Compatibilty with existing school resources
- Peer-to-peer support from teachers across the country
- The abilty to include comercial music within radio shows
- Free set up and technical support
The initial target of £2500 is needed to support a limited number of free accounts and transition My Live School from its pilot phase to self-sustainability. We have designed a pricing structure that offers schools unmatched affordabity, without compromising function.
By reaching the minimum target we can prioritise and allocate free accounts to schools located in areas with the greatest social need. Although, with enough support, we hope to reach our stretch target and accelerate our development plan and dramatically increase the number of free accounts My Live School can support. Every pledge brings us one step closer to our goal of accessible broadcasting opportunities for all children across the UK.
My Live School has removed common obstacles and cleared a path for all schools to Get Involved. My Live School will continue to focus on ensuring all children have a voice, regardless of social factors and perceived barriers such as;
- Digital inequality/Access to technology
- Learning obstacles
- Learning disabilties
- Living in rual communities
- Living in areas of high social decay
As well as raising academic attainment; My Live School also promotes child resilience, aspiration and self realisation, which helps to empower children to become adults equipped to overcome personal or social circumstance.
