Mrs. Birgel had Philip Shabbazz come and talk with her classes on Monday the 20th. 3 students were so moved by the experience that they wrote a rap to thank Mr. Shabbazz. Using an iPod and a Belkin Tune Talk, they recorded their rap during tutorial. I then put it in my iTunes and created an mp3 that I emailed to Mrs. Birgel so she could email it to him.
Awesome example of how students can create new media using the new tools.
