Master music teacher Amy Burns shares how her music students use Seesaw as a place for performance and sharing with parents and grandparents. Amy believes this pedagogical shift is a game changer in the music classroom Learn more.

Project Pals has a useful classroom collaborative platform that lets you create and manage projects for your students. Right now, my students are creating and managing a project as they are creating a podcast to record powerful stories from the recent storms in our area.
Project Pals connects with Google Classroom but also lets me see detail on which students are contributing and participating. I also love the task board which is a Trello-like Kanban board that let students create, assign, and complete tasks. See my recent review of Project Pals.

I chose to listen to this podcast because I thought it would be interesting. I don’t have much experience in the music classroom! I love the idea that the students don’t have to have an email to use Seesaw. I think parents would love being notified when their child creates a music masterpiece! What a great way to share what kids have been learning in class!
