Presentation Description: Grade 5 students embarked on a journey of composition that revolved around writing for characters, objects, places and more. They investigated music of other cultures, used iPads and developed their own iTunesU Course with work-samples showing their amazing creations from Chinese themes to Little Red Riding Hood.
In this video I will walk you through our lessons, student feedback and the creative process as well as the method I use to integrate iPads successfully into the music-storytelling-classroom. Visit Grade 5’s compositions on YouTube here http://bit.ly/1OtMfoj and leave your own discussions on our iTunesU Course ‘Fairytale Compositions’ as feedback – we would love to see what inspires your students to compose.
