How I Use It
This program gives students an emotional outlet and creative choice in demonstrating learned content, collaborating, application with higher level thinking skills, plays to different ability levels, musician or non-musician - there's something for everyone. For teachers, not having to create classes and just sharing an assignment with the link is a huge time saver and very convenient. Our county has the messaging and conferencing feature turned off for safety purposes. I wish there was a way to comment inside the project without opening it up all the way, but aside from that I am loving it!
My Take
This program gives students an emotional outlet and creative choice in demonstrating learned content, collaborating, application with higher level thinking skills, plays to different ability levels, musician or non-musician - there's something for everyone. The possibilities are endless! Better yet, teachers don't need to know a lot about music to let the kids loose - it's very user-friendly. The tool seems simple at its base, nestling the intense, advance features deeper into the program in places that make sense for students who are ready for those tools to be able to find and use them.
