Highligh from Day 2
I feel that the highlight from Day 2 would be how to utilize Chrome Music Lab and Groove Pizza in any grade level. Younger students can sing and create melodies with it, even with one device and a screen/SMART Board in the room. I love that you can sing into the song maker, as well as create by moving the rectangles onto the screen. Older students can explore science, math, and music with both Chrome Music Lab and Groove Pizza. In addition, it is wonderful that Groove Pizza allows you to export your drum beats so you can share them into other programs. It was wonderful to see all of the music making!
