How I Use It
Garage Band can be used in several ways. My students used it to create their own music for movies. Some students needed more help than others with starting a loop and finding the music. It was very simple for the students once they figured out how it worked.
My Take
I love this tool. I can't find more uses than simply making music. Some other apps allow users to collaborate which would be an awesome feature.
