Need a collaborative recording studio on your Chromebook, PC or Mac? You got it. Soundtrap.com is a Chrome based web app that lets you record sound or create loop based sequences on any laptop or PC. It has a simple interface but a fair bit of power underneath. You can create sound tracks for videos, learn the basics of sequencing dance tracks, record singing or instrumental playing, import sounds, apply effects, and many other features. What is particularly interesting about Soundtrap is that more than one person can work on a track. It is free to store 5 songs, but you can download completed ones as MP3s – so you should have plenty of scope. You can create some decent recordings with the loops provided for free and these should certainly cover the needs of most students up to the end of Keystage 3. Once you are into the older age groups, they may want more loops to explore with. They do offer substantial discounts for schools including free teacher accounts and a 30 day trial of the Premium service. It generally works pretty well and is worth a try.

Zaption - Interact & Learn with Video Lessons Books-to-Games: Transforming Classic Novels Into Role Playing Adventures Authors, editors and publishers spend months and years refining a book until it’s ready to be published. That publication date is part of the book’s copyright and marks the completion of the book. But what if a completed book was just the beginning of the story? Through tabletop role-playing games, educators are beginning to tinker with traditional works of literature and, in the process, reimagine how writing and character development are taught. Take, for example, “Fahrenheit 451” by Ray Bradbury. When Kip Glazer taught English at Independence High School (Kern High School District) last year, she wanted to reimagine the traditional way of teaching “Fahrenheit 451” by turning the experience of developing English literacy skills into a game. When the story’s elements are liberated from a linear text, students are able to apply their creativity and critical thinking skills to manipulate the story based on a deep understanding of the book.
