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…

It took some work this past summer, but I had our new and improved podcasting studio set up in our media center. My students will soon do episode 500 (on October 31) so it is great to have more professional equipment and a quicker work flow.
We used to record with Audacity and then go through about 10 steps to get each episode published to our podcast server so that iTunes could index it. Now we run the entire studio on iPads and it takes only one step.

My friends over at Atomic Learning just posted a video featuring photos of educators who stopped by their booth at ISTE and completed the sign “I am [ ]“.Read More
The ISTE annual edtech conference kicked off with a member celebration as the hosts took us through different superheroes and partners through history and spun each duo to how they would be if they met at ISTE. Here are some photos from the event.
