    Extending Chromebook and the Google Environment - Dunedin

    Kia ora kaiako

    Please share back what you have tried out in your learning environment regarding Chromebooks and/or Google suite tools, here in Edspace.  We'd love to hear the successes, the challenges, the inspirations, the curiosities you (and your students) now have.  

    For me, when I was working with a group of students this week using Chrome Music Lab, I had a moment of 'whoa what's happening here' when suddenly they were so engrossed, that our focus on working collaboratively went straight to independent focus.  It got me to wondering is there an app or extension out there where the children can be working on different computers but on the same musical piece.  If so, how could we then use that to encourage collaboration that is authentic?

    Kia ora Rachel,

    Or does the collaboration come from putting two students on one device and getting the discussions going between them about purpose and audience and then creating the piece of music together? Or maybe the collaboration occurs at the sharing stage when they get feedback and support from others to rework the piece of music? 

    Imagine a collaborative experiment where groups of students all have to use their devices to create a musical piece that is recorded on one device - sort of a band of Chromebooks all playing their part in an orchestra.
