Digital natives typically love music, and once they have learned how many LOVE to create their own music. In this session, we’ll explore tools like Garageband (for Macintosh users) and Fruity Loops (For Windows users) which permit student authoring of original music compositions: No prior musical background required! We’ll explore how students can legally obtain Creative Commons (CCMixter) shared music created by others, which can be remixed and mashed into new creations. Join the digital music revolution, and invite your students to do the same! It’s legal, it’s fun, it’s engaging, and the process helps cultivate development of a wide host of 21st century literacy skills that students need for success in the future! I presented this session at the TCEA Region 10/11 Technology Conference in Plano, Texas on October 28, 2006 with my 8 year old son, Alexander.
