Students get a new tool for learning
Usually, when the fifth graders at North Trail Elementary School compose their four-measure songs in music teacher Nancy Huppert's class, Huppert has a hard time hearing herself think because the sound of kids tapping out tunes on xylophones fills her room.
But not this year.
This year students are taking a different approach to their assignment. They're composing their songs on iPads, with the benefit of a keyboard application and a set of headphones.
