In celebration of our STEAM Awareness Week, my students explored improvising and composing apps in our general music classroom. Not only did they create music with the apps, but they also learned to think critically about the qualities of the apps by using these App Review Rubrics. Use in conjunction with my free download Music App Review T-Chart
to provide differentiated materials for your students, or to sequence their responses by grade level. My students really enjoyed creating on the apps, but they were also enthusiastic about sharing their opinions and recommendations!
I have provided a copy of each without the wallpaper, for easier printing. If you do download these rubrics to encourage your students to think about more than just the content they are working with on the app, then please take the time to share a comment! Thank you!
