For this week I decided to use Youtube as my tool to help me learn my first song. I had been practicing all week with a video posted by Ricky Somborn. I would take time to pause the video and play at my own pace. I’m still in the learning process, so I had to adapt it to my own pace. I did try a couple of times to keep up with his pace, but was very unsuccessful. I hope to one day play at the same pace as him. I appreciated how he organized his video with chords on the side and notes above them. Then the notes were on top of the words. I do know how to read music and this way made it very easy for me to understand. To use the SAMR in the classroom, students can watch videos about a topic. Later on, they can make their video to teach others about what they learned.
For this week I decided to use iMovie on my MacBook. I had never used this before and found it a bit challenging at first but think I got the job done. I had to upload the video to YouTube because my file was too big.
