Rock Our World
Using Appleā€™s GarageBand, each country creates a 30 second drum beat. Every Friday, that drum rotates to another country, where the bass guitar is added. It keeps getting passed along, from country to country. At each stop, one more instrument is added. When it comes back to the original country, it has touched students from all over the world!
While the music is moving, students are meeting each other in live video chats to discuss various topics of curriculum.
