  17. 17. Teaching Strategies for GarageBand Interview Project Active Learning In an Active Learning environment students are given the opportunity to talk and listen, read and write, and reflect as they work on a project of which requires students to apply what they are learning in a small group. In this GarageBand Interview project the students will have the chance to use what they have learned in GarageBand to portray a historical interview of a prominent Nebraskan. The students are discovering, applying and processing information that they have researched in order to write a script for the interview. Cooperative Learning Cooperative Learning occurs when the students are in small teams with each student having a different level of ability. Each member of a team is responsible for helping teammates learn and for understanding the material themselves, they therefore sink or swim together. This creates an atmosphere of achievement. In this GarageBand project the students are working with a partner gaining a greater satisfaction with their learning experience, develop social skills, and improve their self-esteem. When the students work with a partner, most will have a greater retention and in turn provide a better final project. Individual and group accountability will be assessed through individual tests at the end of the project and a group grade for the actual project itself. Demonstration The Demonstration Method of teaching will be used during the GarageBand Interview project. The teacher will demonstrate how to manipulate Garageband through the PowerPoint presentation created with the screen shots. When the general over view of GarageBand is set, the teacher will actually demonstrate how to record voices, add background music, and sound effects. This will be shown step by step using the exact physical procedures. While demonstrating the teacher will explain the reason for and the significance of each step in order and including all steps. Using this demonstration step allows the students the opportunity to see and hear the details related to the skill being taught. This will accompany a print out of the GarageBand PowerPoint Slides to use as reference. By demonstrating the students can see where to finds appropriate tools and buttons that they will utilize during the creation of their interview project. Allowing the students to follow along in GarageBand while demonstrating will aid them in recalling the information when they need to use it.
  18. 18. Teaching Strategies for GarageBand Interview Project Continued APL Teaching Strategies One of the APL strategies that fit nicely in the GarageBand Podcast project is the daily Bell Ringer activity that utilizes note cards. On each note card has a different short question or activity that is to be accomplished with a partner. As the students come into the classroom they grab a note card and begin to complete the activity immediately. Then the teacher randomly chooses a numbered note card. The chosen number group reads the question aloud and gives an answer for all to hear. If time permits another card number may be chosen. They always have the same partner throughout the project, therefore every day they grab a different card so before the end assessment everyone has completed all of the note card short tasks. These cards are purposed as a review so all of the material has already been taught. Then on the test day we take about 1 minute for each card and pass them around the room reviewing them all. Questions are answered as they occur. The assessment question are derived directly from the note cards. Therefore cards, are also in PowerPoint form. I print them off two slides to a page and staple them together at the top like a flipbook. Each group can go through them if they finish the project before others, or have any extra time. Integrating Technology Today most teachers realize that computer literacy is crucial to a student’s education. By integrating technology into curriculum can enhance and extend the learning experience for students and teachers alike. Since this project is directly reliant on technology, it is actually a technology project that integrates Nebraska’s Social Studies Standards. The students are required to learn prominent Nebraskans, so by turning it into an interview project they are required to use research skills, copyright issues, Nebraskan history, how to use the GarageBand software, and working cooperatively. This project covers several of the ISTE NETS and Performance Indicators for Students (NET-S). Creativity and Innovation, Communication and Collaboration, Research and Information Fluency, Digital Citizenship, and the Technology Operations and Concepts are all covered in this GarageBand Interview Project.
  19. 19. ASSESSMENTS
  20. 20. Name____________________ Historical Interviews A GarageBand Project Pre-Test Describe what a reporter does when conducting an interview. Where have you seen or heard an interview before, who was being interviewed, or who was doing the interviewing? What are the “5 W’s” when asking questions? Have you ever used GarageBand? YES NO If you answered yes what have you created using GarageBand? Name at least 3 Famous People from Nebraska, and tell me why they are famous. Can you tell me why each of these Nebraskans are famous? Annie Oakley Bob Devaney Gerald Ford Harold Edgerton – Name at least three sources you could search to find factual information about famous historical Nebraskans. Name 2 or 3 classmates that you would like to work with on this project, and could eagerly share the responsibilities with. Please name a boy and a girl. How do you feel about presenting in front of your classmates, to show off what you have created? Examples might be…Nervous, Worried, Excited, Don’t Care, Can’t Wait.
  21. 21. WRITTEN INTERVIEW RUBRIC
  22. 22. Historical Interview Rubric 4 Points 7 Points 10 Points Tracks 1 track - vocal 2 tracks – vocal and music At Least 4 – 2 vocal, background music and sound effects Background Music Seems inappropriate for the interview It is there, but doesn’t really seem to fit the mood of the interview Fits the mood of the interview Interview Questions Simple questions that anyone could answer, and not enough of them Most questions are are only from one category and could be answered by anyone Wide range of questions including memory, explanation and judgment questions backup questions to get more information present Answers Mostly yes or no or limited answers with the Interviewer doing most of the talking Limited answers with inappropriate phrases, or not based on researched facts Accurate, based on researched facts, explained thoroughly with a story or example Volumes Vocal track isn’t recorded loud enough to hear above the music and sound effects Hard to understand the vocal track, the music is louder than the vocals All tracks are heard clearly with the vocal tracks standing out loud and clear Entertaining – Clever - Unique Hard to listen to, noisy with little information from the historical character, no “wow” I didn’t know that – sounds like I have heard this before Nice Interview, easy to hear and listen to but the music may not fit or be too loud, not at a nice equal level some of the questions sound copied Enjoyable to listen to, easy on the ears, and informational with many facts and stories to back them up - one of a kind Timing The music doesn’t come in at appropriate times, two people are talking at once, no pauses between questions and or answers Sound effects do not come in at the right time, the music ends to soon or starts to late answers don’t come right after the question Introductions are made, both vocal and musical, there is appropriate pauses between questions and answers, sound effects come at the right time Overall Effectiveness Don’t want anyone other than the teacher to see it, and would prefer if she wouldn’t listen to it either Really don’t want to show this to my friends and family, it didn’t turn out the way I hoped it would Something you are proud of creating and you can’t wait to show your friends and family Working Together One person did all of the research and typing and controlled everything in the project Most of the project was completed by one person doing all of the computer work and the other person just reading what their partner wrote for the interview Partners worked well together were openminded and put forth equal effort on research, typing, recording, and using the computer Ganser 2011
