PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

The “Music & Audio Computer Lab Combo” contains one 3-day lesson and two 2-day lessons for the computer lab. Save $4.00 by combining all three products!

1) Fair Use guidelines state you can only use up to 30 seconds of a song before copyright infringement occurs. How can you digitally take a full-length song and extract a portion for your project? How can students insert music clips into their PowerPoint slides while respecting the rights of the artists? “Creating Music Clips” shows you how! The 3 day lesson has students downloading TV theme songs, using Audacity (free) to create 30 second clips, and creating a "Name That Tune" PowerPoint.

2) “Creating Audio Clips” shows you how to download and install Audacity, an open source (free) software package that allows you make voice recordings, make changes, apply sound effects, and save your work in a variety of formats including MP3 and WAV. Step by step instructions with diagrams detail how to create digital voice recordings and insert them into PowerPoint slides. Lesson plans and materials for the following computer lab exercises are provided: “Audacity Voice Recording Challenge” and “PowerPoint Slide Narration Challenge” . Class Time: 2 days.

3) How do you make your PowerPoint presentations talk without recording your own voice? Let “Talking PowerPoints” show you how to use a free online utility to type in your sentences, select an English, Spanish, French, German or Italian voice, and download the text as sound files. Import these sound files into each slide to create a talking presentation! Ideal for creating vocabulary quizzes, sentence translation activities, and student-created stories. Excellent for a technology integration lesson in the computer lab. Class Time: 2 days.
