iPad Rock Star Boot Camp pt 2

#ipaded #edtech #mlearning Last Wednesday I did my second class of my new iPad Rock Star Boot Camp with my students in fourth and fifth grade and I wanted to give you a brief update.

Last week I explained how we are teaching music on the iPad without knowing any music theory to try to prove it can be done -- kind of like flipping music instruction. Instead of years of music theory before learning to rock, we learn to rock and then the motivation is there to learn music theory. I am very happy to report that this is what I have been seeing.

The kids love rocking out on the iPads. Our song "Boulevard of Broken Dreams" is starting to sound like a real song, and today we plan on working on singing.

Here are some photos from last week...
