Apps for the Classroom

K-3

Audacity

This app acts as a music recorder, mixer, and looper. It allows students to record downloaded music or their own song with the additional function of allowing vocals to be layers over top the sound to create their own music or song.

I would have my class divided into groups where they would make different sounds or play different instruments. i would then be able to record and layer the different sounds using the app to create our own class song.

An additional way of using this app to enhance students learning in the classroom would be to slow down audio files for students with language barriers.
