Published by Continuum Books "Mathematics Education with Digital Technology" edited by Adrian Oldknow & Carol Knights, Russell has written Chapter 12 "Home & School - Bridging the Gap" The title draws on the expertise of a wide range of contributors from across the globe. It is thought provoking and challenging and covers a diverse range of ICT. It is hoped that this publication can move the agenda forward and bring ICT to all our students. ISBN 978-1-4411-8472-6 published by www.Continuumbooks.com Other contributors include Don Passey, Andy Kemp, Vanessa Pittard and David Wright, the book is highly recommended but it isn't for the faint hearted.
Long Field Live
I cannot recommend this product highly enough. The quality of the equipment is superb and easy to use. Russell was inspiring and charismatic when he worked with the students from Long Field. They said it was their 'best ever 2 days at school'. The school radio station has had a huge impact already and has limitless potential to enhance the learning experience for our students and those in our local primary schools. The Anderton Tiger Desktop is a 'must' for all innovative, creative and forward thinking schools!

Bradon Forest Radio
recently purchased this School radio and are already starting to
see the benefits. The training day with Russell for pupils and
teachers inspired them and we have not stopped broadcasting
The radio helps our AGAT students to shine in producing shows but we will next work with our pupils who have lower literacy skills to encourage them to develop these skills.
We would strongly recommend this teaching and learning solution.
David Wright - Head of ICT - Bradon Forest School, Purton, Wiltshire
Fields Primary School
purchased this amazing piece of equipment only a few weeks ago,
and I have seen what a massive impact it can have on the
children in my school.
They are confident, organised and on task for the whole time we use the radio, and they love broadcasting live to the whole school community.
Russell came in to give us a whole day's inset as part of the purchasing cost and he was a very good teacher.
The children and I learnt so much about the equipment and radio techniques, and I felt very confident afterwards that I could teach this to the rest of the school.
I have initially trialled the equipment with my year 6 classes, and now intend to have a regular lunchtime club with children vertically grouped across the whole school.
Many children returned an electronic audition to me, and I am pleased to say that this group will begin work next week.
They will broadcast live across the school for 30 minutes every lunchtime, and they will be in charge of what goes on the show and putting it together.
I know that this radio system will be an excellent purchase for the school for years to come and I cannot recommend it highly enough.
If your school can afford it, buy it, sit back, let the kids go with it and watch them flourish!
Ricky Emms - YR6 Teacher - Ashby Fields School, Daventry
Worsbrough Common Primary School
met Russell at BETT we decided to purchase the Broadcaster
We have all be blown away by it's potential! A core group of children currently form the radio team with all classes contributing an article each week for our Friday show.
From the start Russell has been fantastic, his enthusiasm, passion and understanding of learning is unshakeable.
The training day was fantastic and by the time he had left teachers and learners had got a firm grasp of how to use the broadcaster.
The equipment itself is great - really easy to use and allows the children to quickly get a really professional sounding show out.
Russell's after care has also been terrific - we encountered a problem last week (of our own making!) and one phone call to Russell immediately got us back on track.
I couldn't recommend highly enough -and I'm very fussy! ;)
