The first one I wanted to share was a website (works on a tablet) and this is called Noteflight. Noteflight is a free website where students can go and create, edit, and share music that they have written. My biggest issue with this website is students must create accounts but as I have shared with my music teachers I would go in ahead of time and set up the accounts for the students I am using this with. You can get the paid for education version which is $69 a year (I don't think that's a bad price for one year and unlimited students). The ideas that I have shared with my teachers for using this website are the obvious ones, have students create their own music and share it out there. You're giving your students the ability to create (which is something we should be doing more of in music class) and when students share these compositions out there they gain that authentic audience piece which in terms of Blooms and SAMR really takes it to the next level. The other option is to give students a score and have them rewrite the ending. Have students work together to listen to the music that was created and find an ending that would keep the story line behind the music but give it more of "them" as a student(s).
Soundation is another website that reminds me a lot of Garageband, this website has the look and feel of Garageband but you're not required to be using and iOS device. With this website OR Garageband students can work on different concepts like rhythm, melody, and harmony and create pieces or loops for each and then combine the three into a composition.
Google Hangouts and Skype are great ways to connect with outside musicians, these tools have been around for quite some time but educators have continued to struggle with ways to integrate. These tools were specifically designed for connecting people, breaking down the barriers that come with distance and travel. Both of these tools offer websites that allow you to find other educators or professionals that are available for connecting.
Aurasma is a free app as well as website for creating augmented reality and can be used in any classroom experience however today I'll focus on music. Aurasma takes QR codes to the next level so teachers if you've been using QR codes you definitely need to take a look at this app. The teacher blog I follow used Aurasma to get students to learn and understand famous composers and signers. Students would scan the picture and either a website, image, video, or article will pop up. Check out this link Prezi for more information about Aurasma in the classroom.
