So it’s been a while since I’ve taken a class that has tried to give me homework (I’m saving up my homework energy for grad school!) Last month I won the lottery to get in to one of district professional development opportunities entitled “Learn it and Earn it”. This class gives its attendees a brand new piece of technology and they have to attend 3 classes on this new technology in order to keep it for good. The money for this comes from our professional development funds our district provides to each staff member. I received a new iPad mini from this class and am one session away from it being mine!
Our homework for next class on the 31st is to create a short video or digital story on our iPad minis that we could potentially use in our classes. I love using Youtube videos to enhance my lessons and creating another video I could use was awesome, I’m starting to think about more videos that I could actually have students make or make with students.
Using the iMovie app and inspired by Quaver Music’s song “Whole Half Quarter and Eighth” I decided on the subject of identification of notes and rests. The following is my current video, if you have any feedback before I turn it in I would love to hear it!
