How I Use It
I was teaching a unit on Music Downloading, the legalities, copyright etc. As the final project (major hook) I had students use Soundation to create a project. I was able to make groups (classes) and students where able to post their project to the group, they where able to listen to each others songs, leave comments and finally vote on the one they enjoyed best.
My Take
As a teaching tool I think it is great. There are resources and how to videos. There is also an education version though you need to make a purchase of the Music First Online Classroom. I used the free version and it worked fine for my purposes. What I liked most was how students found each others projects online in the class group I created, listened to each others projects, left comments (great for feedback) and finally voted. Very collaborative. It was a huge success with my students.
