For our unit of inquiry, “People use a variety of languages to communicate their ideas and feelings” the children and I have been watching a variety of videos showing art forms such as music, dance and mime. The children were fascinated by the musical video created entirely from everyday objects by the STOMP performance group.
We have a STOMP app on our iPads and this gave an authentic reason to introduce our music apps on the iPad. These apps give the children an opportunity to work in open-ended ways, creating their own pieces.The video shows the children’s initial exploration of the apps.
The level of cooperation and the sharing of ideas.
The way the children explore a range of apps.
How the children question whether an app can share created content with others.
