Original Post: Digital Storytelling for Beginners
Depending on students’ levels and your objectives, have students use UJAM to record themselves singing an original song or playing an original piece on an instrument. Have them use the site’s options to turn their single track into a full-blown arrangement. Depending on your expectations, give students specific tasks, i.e., they must create a customized ‘style’ for their piece OR they must edit the chords of at least one track.
When all students have completed a piece, collect their mp3s and create an original CD to sell as a fund-raiser.
