I think we're having fun playing with Voice Thread, or as the tutorial abbreviates, "VT" (which I wish didn't remind me of Vermont, as then my mind drifts back to our visit to Quechee, the Cabot Outlet and those beautiful cows!...but I digress...)
The browsing turned up some very interesting examples as I searched "school music". The best application thus far is using the VT as a place to offer tutorials. One walked students through the sign up process for a free online music composition tool--clear as a bell to follow, very well done, and in a format that allowed the user to review it over and over at their own pace. Another was student-created; a middle school jazz band advertised their group, who was invited, what they did, and what they liked about the group. Kids' images were used extensively--are we o.k. as this is a shared thing with limited people, or did kids have to sign off on an image policy document?
