Apple Beats 1 Julie Adenuga GCSE Media Studies Close Study Product CSP Radio

Resources for the Close Study Product for the reformed AQA GCSE Media Studies course. Designed for AQA, also applies to Eduqas and anyone discussing the launch of Apple Beats 1 in 2015 and the changing radio/streaming landscape. The resources study the Media Audiences and Industries around the Beats1 launch and the social and political aspects of this decision. The Powerpoint includes all resources and four lessons work (with possible expansion).

Lesson 1: How has radio changed since the launch of Radio 1.? The historical development of Apple Beats 1 - what is Beats 1? Who are the launch DJs and why have they been chosen?
Lesson 2: What is the Julie Adenuga Show? How does Beats1 compare with traditional media forms.
Lesson 3: How much of a threat is Beats1 to the traditional radio industry? How do Apple target their audience? How does Beats 1 fulfill the needs of listeners
Lesson 4: What is the future of radio? How do the launches of Radio 1 (other CSP) and Apple Beats1 compare?

All of the above are linked through activities to the Apple Beats1 Launch Show and could extend into further lessons and discussions. As previous 5-star reviews for other CSPs published on TES have stated ‘these are great starting points’ for lesson delivery.
Powerpoint file contains all resources, along with a Personal Learning Checklist (PLC) for students to RAG-rate their knowledge, skills and understanding. As reviewers have stated for previous Media Studies CSPs:
"Just buy it!"
“Your resources have been life savers!”
“Well worth the money and really saved my life”
“I just wanted to say that as a non-specialist these resources are worth every single penny! Thank you so much for making and sharing them.”
“Blown away by this! Excellent AS Eduqas revision tool. Can’t thank you enough!”
“They have saved me a huge amount of time and the detail that goes into your work is second to none. You put others to shame who charge twice as much for very little. Can’t thank you enough.”
“Your new spec resources are saving me hours & hours of work! Thanks, they are really good.”
"These resources are so useful - I cannot tell you how much time they have save me - very clear to follow and easy to adapt for revision material — well worth the money"
