How I Use It
This app can make a big difference in providing some differentiation in a secondary science classroom. Students can use it to record audio podcasts, or recordings that demonstrate their knowledge. It can help hook artistic students into a project when they can create a piece of music or a soundtrack to accompany a scientific report.
My Take
This app is great! In a secondary science classroom, access to this app is a must. There is never a situation in my class where all students are using this app, but for those students that want to use GarageBand to create music and record audio, there is nothing comparable!
