How I Use It
I have used Soundtrap in my classroom as both an instructional and assessment tool. I utilize Soundtrap to record read alouds and add sound effects. This assists me in engaging my reluctant readers as well as freeing me for classroom management. For students, I use Soundtrap as an alternate method of assessment in the ELA classroom.
My Take
Overall, I think Soundtrap is an excellent tool. It can be used on my Chromebooks unlike Garage Band. I like that it allows students to demonstrate an understanding of mood and tone with their use of sound. I do wish that there were more sounds available in the free option.
