Teacherworkshops @ Goethe-Institut Prag - producing Songs in German lessons with the smartphone and Ipad

In Prague we organized the first time 2 Teacher workshops and 2 school workshops and my aim was to teach and develop with the teachers a strategy to produce an entire song with the tablet or smart phone in a German school lesson. The teachers where very motivated and some of them even created their own strategies to implement mobile technology in their classroom.

With the students in the schools we wrote a German pop song text and produced afterwards 2 songs recorded only with the Ipad. Here is the quite amazing result what is possible in 2 hours of workshop:

Ipadsong 1: "unsere Schule ist keine Coole" (weder Spüle noch Rettungsmodule)



Ipadsong 2: "Schau aus dem Fenster, Du alter Gängster"

Goethe-Institut Krakau Tournee Part 2

Our second Tour with the Goethe-Institut Krakau. This time we had a special mission: The participants of the school workshops selected their own subject our Tour song should be about: "EUROPE".
So we travelled 14 Days through the south of Poland and wrote altogether a kind of love song about Europe and recorded it in the classroom. The result is amazing. The students where singing so beautiful and good that it nearly sounds like a professional recording, hopefully this songs gets spread all over Europe: Poland 12 Points!

"Wir sind Euopa" (We are Europe):

Goethe-Institut Australia Song

finally the Australia song is finished, the students in school decided to do a song about Aboriginals and equality in their country. It was really not easy to make a POPsong about that, but like always we managed it. This time with a little help from the teachers also. 

"wir sind alle gleich" (we are all the same, closing the gap) 
 Here some Infos about the Tour and the teachers workshops:
