Garageband is a great app on the iPad, but it can be daunting for the teacher that simply wants to record, edit and share some voices in class. Here's how to set Garageband up. It is worth making the effort because GarageBand can open up a whole range of create options.
What if you could create your world? Tink is a toolkit that allows kids to engage with familiar objects in new ways. The kit includes six sensors (light, sound, tilt, vibration, people, temperature), six plugs, and an iPad application. With Tink, kids can program items in their environments using sensory input, such as "if dad comes home, surprise him with his favorite song," or "if someone opens my diary, scare them with a sound." Tink empowers kids to tinker with their environments, thereby enabling them as engineers, builders, and makers.
