Looking for some inspiration? Take a few minutes to check out http://www.inbflat.net and when you go back to your students, show it to them. I was absolutely blown away by In Bb2.0 courtesy of Chris Lehman’s recent Twitter/Facebook post.
In Bb 2.0 is a collaborative music and spoken word project conceived by Darren Solomon from Science for Girls. The project invites the world to participate in an amazing musical collaboration by singing or playing an instrument, in Bb major for 1 – 2 minutes and uploading it to YouTube and emailing the link to the producer. If all is done well, the video get’s added to the collection at http://www.inbflat.net where it joins the other videos that are posted. The videos can be played together, some or all, started at any time, in any order.
As an innovative educator, I instantly wondered what implications this has for teaching and learning and what kind of projects can our students collaborate on to make their own beautiful music?
