|Zoom H4n recorder|
It's a digital recorder that I plan to use to create audio portfolios of students' work. I have to learn how it works, and am getting ready to hook it up to the school's Mac Book!
If you've never heard of Donors Choose, then I recommend it. This little device was very expensive. But thanks to the generous gift of Aija, and KIA motors, the project request was funded and within a week of funding, it arrived!
You can check out my project called Rock, Rock, Record and get some details.
The process of signing up for a project and the steps to qualify each time are a little challenging, but definitely "doable". When creating a project you gain, earn and spend points. The more points you collect, the bigger the funding projects you're allowed.
Project materials, become property of the school district. You can't take it with you if you leave for parts unknown. That's a newly stated policy it seems. But that's ok. I don't mind leaving it for the next person-if the technology doesn't improve in the next 10 years (right-LOL).
So, when I get some student songs and works recorded, I'll try and post them here, so you can HEAR what it sounds like.
In the meantime, try donorschoose.org if you need some funding for a project. There are all kinds of examples, and help if needed. It's worth the look.
