How I Use It
I've used GarageBand in a variety of ways including creating podcasts, music scores, voiceovers, audio books, background music for plays, dramatic readings, etc. One of the coolest ways I've used GarageBand has been to assist struggling readers to improve their literacy skills by tracking their fluency over time.
My Take
I love using GarageBand as a teaching tool. It's an awesome tool with endless possibilities. I love how easy it is for students to learn to use and how much fun my students have exploring new ways to engage with the tool. GarageBand is one of my favorite teaching tools.
