Paper Here.

The environment means a lot to the owner of Wonderland and he is determent to keep his park clean and green. To do this he has contacted a family of statues who eat garbage for a living. Turning recycling in a playful game.

The next step for this project is to thank the visitors who  help keep Wonderland’s environment clean and free from rubbish using these Talking Trash Cans. 

He wants them to shout ‘Paper here’ whenever you pass by, so if you have any paper rubbish with you during your visit, please stop by and feed them – they will thank you!

Skoog and GarageBand make it possible for all of us to create music.

The Steps.

Here is my story:

Open the Skoog app and tap on the Skoog icon in the upper left hand corner to connect your device.

Next, turn midi on to connect to GarageBand. Turn the Skoog sounds off by tapping on Audio On/Off.

Then click on the home button and start a new GarageBand project.

Tap on instruments and swipe till you see the keyboard. On the keyboard, tap on the Sampler.

Point your iPad towards the sound that you want to record, then tap start. After you stop recording,  you can instantly play the sound on the sampler using your Skoog.

Tap on the metronome to turn it off. Then tap on the start button and record your message for when someone helps cleaning up the park by using the trash cans.

Edit the sound bit where necessary.

Swipe gently up from the bottom of your screen to reveal the Dock. Then drag the Skoog app on top of GarageBand.

Change the scales and play with the recording.

Going Further.

Thank you for keeping the park pristine.

This is one of the activities that educators can participate in during The Playground at FETC and TCEA.
