I really enjoyed this episode of 10 minute teacher. I find it inspiring to listen to the different ways other teachers incorporate technology in their classrooms. I teach kindergarten and feel that exploration is so important to their cognitive development. What better way than to allow children to explore through creating sounds (music) on their IPads! So many opportunities to learn here and tie to other content areas. I can see how this can be integrated into teaching opposites and patterns. So many possibilities here its great. Thank you!
