Our group’s instructional video was on music, meter, measure, and different types of beats!
We begin the video with Brandon listening to music and counting the music, and then explaining what that means to Colin, which leads into a instructional video on how to count and read music!
Nicole explains quarter notes, Colin explains eighth notes, and I explain half notes.
We then complete the video by having a jam session and then bring it back to the beginning by Brandon and Colin both listening to and counting music while I come up then asking what they are doing, to conclude the video!
We added in transitions between scenes to mimic That 70’s Show‘s transitions.
I believe that we included many of the ISTE Standards. We facilitated and hopefully inspired student learning and creativity through use of this video, along with designing and development of digital age learning experiences through this assessment because our video is an online learning tool, which is clearly a big part of the digital age of learning. We modeled digital age work and learning through our video along with promoting and modeling digital citizenship and responsibility, and we engaged in a professional environment which resulted in growth and leadership skills that we learned through this project.
Hope you enjoy and learn something new about counting music! =)

I found creating Web-Quests challenging at first but then saw how informational they could be for a student’s learning process. I found creating the Web-Quest to at first be confusing, but then really enjoyed it because I was interested in the content I was working on, since it would apply to the grades I want to teach one day! Completing our classmates Web-Quests was the most difficult because I had to understand their layout and content they gave us, and trying to understand what they wanted us to do. A question I have is at what grade level are Web-Quests assigned the most? The second two Web-Quests I participated in I found were at the perfect level, but the first Web-Quest I participated in was difficult to navigate and it had way too much information and more learning objectives than expected, which made it not very fun to complete. I liked that we got to look at other class Web-Quests before creating our own to help us understand and inspire us to create our own. Personally, Web-Quests aren’t going to be something that I use in the future since I want to teach kindergarten, but I could totally see them being used for older grades as a great way of effective learning!
My presentation is on the Nine Stepping Stones of Digital Citizenship, which is the benchmark of appropriate and responsible behavior in regards to the technology we use in today’s society on the web. In my presentation I list the nine stepping stones of digital citizenship, and for each one I give a definition, an appropriate and an inappropriate use of that step, along with the title of the resource I used along with an explanation on that resource and how it’s helpful. To get to the resource links, click on the title of each stepping stone and it will take you to those connected websites! Click either the website to access through Canva or the second link which should open in a PDF!
