Chapter 12 Mobile and Tablet Devices

12.1 Compose a Musical Theme

Using free apps (like Synth), students create their version of a “theme song” for an academic concept (recidivism, electron shells, etc) and also justify WHY the composition includes the emotion or action it does.

12.2 Create a digital (picture) book

Using the camera on their smartphone or tablet, the students take pictures of a topic. This could be areas or people that matter to them (if you use it as an ice-breaker activity) or any other topic. Using the Book Creator app which can be used on the iPad as an app or online on their laptop or Android device, the create a short digital (picture) book with texts explaining what is shown in the pictures.
