Music Timeline from Google

While looking at the latest resources to hit Google+ this morning, I came across a post about this music timeline that Google posted last week. If you are a music teacher, it is a very visual way to look at the history of music and what some of the important albums released for the various genres were at different points in time. Click on the genre and you'll see a new graphic that breaks it down in to subcategories. Of course, all of the album art links to their Google Play store in hopes that you'll buy it. However, imagine using a site like this to have students chose a genre that they love and then use it as a base for research about what artists and groups came before and lead to the music they know and love today.

  • What similarities do they hear? What differences?
  • Would they have put those albums in the same category as each other?
  • Would they listen to the "classics" from their chosen genre?
  • What was happening in history when their chosen genre of music "peaked" in popularity?
Check it out and let me know what you think!

It depends on if they are officially dropped from your class and appearing as red in your roster and gradebook. If not, then no, you cannot remove them until they have been unenrolled from the class. If the student is showing up as red in your gradebook though, you can hide them so you don't have to worry about them. Here is a screenshot to help you do it:

Keynote Interactivity (and my 200th post)

When I talked with teachers about Nearpod last week, there was a teacher at the highschool who really wants to keep his animations within Keynote while having the interactivity like Nearpod . I told him that I'd look into it to see what was possible. Short story: I'm not having any luck at all.

Build with Chrome (Lego Building Time!)

If you are like me, you spent countless hours when you were young building with legos . If you were a parent of kids like me, you spent countless hours vacuuming up those little pieces or hunting for them with your bare feet in the middle of the night (ouch!). When I heard about Build with Chrome yesterday, you can understand why my eyes lit up. What is Build with Chrome? It's this:
