Rock Our World

Our very own DEN Member, Carol Anne McGuire and her students, are getting ready to Rock Our World!  It won’t be an earthquake, but she has definitely found a unique way of shaking up the traditional classroom.  She has taken technology to a whole new level and taken it for several rides around the world.

Her Rock our World Project is based on the Apple product Garage Band.  Students from from around the world create international song tracks.  Each week a class adds a different musical instrument to the song and then it rotates to the next country.  By the end of the project they will have a total of 12 songs created in 12 countries on 7 different continents.  It’s absolutely amazing!

This year she focused on Christmas Around the World.  Check out their website and share with your students how this time of the year is spent world wide.

The Grand Finale of this project will be a live television broadcast where all 12 schools connect.  Tune in to KOCE Television on December 15th from 10:30-11:30 for this unique Christmas celebration.
