I'm Yours

Today I went to UConn to present to music education students about the iPad in music class.  It was a fun time.  As often happens, students stayed longer than the class period and started using the iPads as an instrument.  Trying to figure out the song "I'm Yours"

So tomorrow I think I will write a lesson for choir and band where they perform and sing this song on the iPad ukelele using the Six Strings app.  We might use garageband.  I hope to post video.

Theory class will work on Dean's guitar lessons.  Why do we do things like this?  As Dean says: it is "assessment FOR learning".  The assessment is where they learn.  Connected learning is can be fun, messy, exciting.
