Web Tool Of The Week


KidblogI recently signed up my Music Theory class for Kidblog.  In only a few weeks, Kidblog has completely transformed the way that I am creating class assignments for my students.

Please check out the blogs that my students are creating.


App of the Week


iMovie ’11 helps you turn ordinary home videos into captivating Hollywood-style trailers that are fun to watch and share. You can choose from fifteen trailer templates including Adventure, Romantic Comedy, and Epic Drama, each with its own unique titles, graphics, and cinematic soundtrack. iMovie also includes powerful new tools that make it easy to selectively adjust audio levels and apply sophisticated visual effects like flash and hold, instant replay, and jump cuts with a single click. People Finder analyzes your videos and marks sections containing faces, so you can quickly find the perfect clips for your trailer or movie. And iMovie ’11 adds new themes that make your videos look like professionally-produced news or sports programs. (Source: Apple.com Website)
