What is it?
Band-in-a-Box is an intelligent automatic accompaniment program for a multimedia computer. You can hear and play along to many song ideas and go from “nothing” to “something” in a short period of time.
It is easy to use. Just type in the chords to any song, pick a musical style from hundreds available, and click the Play button. It automatically generates a full backing arrangement of piano, bass, drums, guitar, and strings.
A: A teaching Model
An inquiry-oriented activity in which most or all of the information used by learners is drawn from the Web. WebQuests are designed to use learners' time well, to focus on using information rather than looking for it, and to support learners' thinking at the levels of analysis, synthesis and evaluation. The model was developed in early 1995 at San Diego State University by Bernie Dodge with Tom March, and was outlined in "Some Thoughts About WebQuests".
What are the parts?
Introduction: Orient the learner, Raise interest, Motivate
Task: Description of what the learners will need to do to complete the Quest
Process: Steps for learners to do in order to complete the task
Resources: Web pages and other resources the students will use to complete the task (pre-selected)
Evaluation : how will the students be measured
Conclusion: Summarize, reflect, discuss.
