First IPR Grading Period ends THIS FRIDAY!
Megatrax- Sound files and Songs
I am going to link the login here so that you can access it. Please make sure you let your students know that if they attempt to type in their PW incorrectly more than three times it will lock EVERYONE out on that login for a couple of hours. It’s super important to be careful when logging in credentials.
The music may be used in video projects that go to contest. This would fall under the “productions not for sale” licensing. If you would like to have the licensing agreement to attach to your UIL/contest submissions please let me know. We are getting the 2017-18 license updated at the end of this month.
One last note regarding MegaTrax music- Last year a few of the songs on a HS broadcast were flagged on YouTube. It looks like it was flagged for copyright but says the “claimant” is allowing the content to be used. It looks like it is being monetized by Megatrax….We are still licensed to use this music and it is ok to upload to YouTube.
We no longer have a subscription to Soundzabound, however we do own the music that was purchased.
It is located here-
I just added Clips to our iPads as another option for a video editor. Check out the 1.5 minute video below by one of our DLCs to see what it does. His school had iPads that were too old for the app, but ours work!
Please remember to turn off projectors!

There are 4 lessons that you will plan and implement that focus on use of technology to collaborate, communicate, think critically and be creative. Here is what we will ask of you through the process for each lesson (Almost all of it is stuff you already do and I can help you!)
