Creativity and accessibility - what an awesome combination!
Have you ever looked for a site you could use to encourage your students to create their own music? Well, here's a great one we've discovered that takes this to a whole new level!
Keyboard is a collaboration between NYU Ability Project and Google. It's an AI experiment that is a simple musical keyboard you can play with your face, body, mouse, or keys. It's designed to be accessible to all and incredibly easy to use.
Take a look and have a play - what could your students do with it?"
tips of the week...
CREATE A NEW GOOGLE FILE FROM YOUR WEB BROWSER
This is a great tip I got from Ben Collins, and it was recently announced by Google .
It's a simple one, but super useful. Type sheets.new or docs.new, form.new, slides.new into your web browser to instantly create a new Google Sheet, Doc, Form or Slides.
If you haven't logged into you Google account you will be asked to do that. Once you type that in - hey presto you have a new sheet, doc, form or slide ready to go.
It works in Chrome, Safari and Firefox.
FLICK SYMBOL ON IPAD KEYBOARD
To insert one of the top grey symbols on a key simply touch the key and pull down. Saves from having to switch between keyboards.
If your iPad keyboard doesn't look like this it might be time for an update.
Thanks to Lisa at Hedgehope School for pointing this one out to me! 😀
