Bloom’s Taxonomy in Music.

I’m creating a wall of Bloom’s questions for my music room at school. I love using these questions with the children. Really makes them think and I find the level of answers the children give me challenges the ‘ ability groupings’ they find themselves in for many aspects of schooling.

Here is the resource to share and discuss as well as a couple of pieces of reading I used when creating my display.

My Bloom’s questions for display.

Use of Bloom’s in a unit of work. (includes questions I added to my display)

Wendell Hanna’s piece about the implications of Bloom’s in music education.

Program similar to Garageband… but for windows.

As part of my planning I was thinking what to do during music sessions. My topic (The Very Important Bear from Learning Unlimited) has a lot of opportunity for using ICT to create mini movies in. I thought using a package similar to garageband would give my children an opportunity to compose music digitally and then use that music for parts of their movie somehow.

I remember being shown a package similar to garageband, but free and for windows machines on the whiteboard blog (link on blogroll). I found it again last night and it’s called myna. http://aviary.com/tools/myna

It seems, so far, to offer a lot of what I would like it do and it seems friendly enough for my class to use. I’m going to spend a bit of time having a play and seeing what it can do and what file formats we can save in.
