Digital Literacies: Using Audacity for pupil radio dramas with sound effects Creating a radio drama using sound effects, Audacity and pupil scripts. One of the favourite activities this year was script writing for an authentic audience. This year we decided to try our hand at creating short radio dramas. I introduced the class to some classic (edited) radio dramas such as Superman and Sam Spade. We discussed in our groups what the purpose of the scripts were in our context, how they were related (connections)to our English and Inquiry topics, what we liked about the dramas we heard, what made them interesting, who would be the audience in the 1940's & 50's as well as what other events were part of the context at the time. We then broke up into our teams for a brainstorming session on what the plot, characters, etc. would be for our own dramas. For example, one group needed someone walking.
