Instructional Ideas

  1. Teachers can let students experiment making audio art with this app. Once students understand how the app functions, teachers can have an “Audio Art” contest. To do so, students create a piece of audio art using this app. Once created, students display their audio art on their iPad and place it in a designated space. After all students have created and displayed their audio art, they are to view their classmates’ work and vote for their favorite. Teachers can add a twist by requiring students to explain in two to three sentences why they voted for the audio art that they did, and students are to write that explanation on their ballot.
  2. After reading a text, students can create a piece of audio art in response. To accompany their work, students can compose a justification that explains how and why their audio art represents the text.
  3. At the beginning of the school year, teachers can use this app as part of an icebreaker activity. To do so, teachers can have students create a piece of audio art that represents them. Next, and without talking, students are to walk around the room and share their audio art with classmates. Students will then learn about their classmates by viewing and listening to their audio art. At the conclusion of this activity, students can write what they learned about some of their classmates.
