Chromatik Brings Modern Innovation to Learning Music

 photo rescuecom-computer-repair-report11_zps3pddn4dq.jpgTraditionally, there has been little technological innovation in sheet music; the greatest innovation in hundreds of years, it would seem, is the ability to view music tabs to play along to online. This is no longer the case thanks to an app called Chromatik. With Chromatik, players any instrument of any skill level can upload, make notes on, and share sheet music, and it can even help make practicing an instrument more fun and organized for kids. There is also a social component to both the site and the app with strong privacy protections that allow kids to connect with fellow students, family members, and trusted teachers.  With Chromatik, users can not only practice anytime, no matter where they are, but they can also discuss music, share recordings, get feedback, and more.

Classkick is an Advancement in Education

Technology applied to education has shown many positive results, but there is still plenty of room for growth and improvement.  A startup called Classkick is one of many that are seeking to bring that growth and improvement in technological applications to education.  Available on the web or as a mobile app, its creators claim that it can provide more individualized, real-time feedback precisely when students need it to keep everyone in a class learning together.  It also, of course, has advantages for teachers, who can use it to view exactly what students are doing and who needs help in real time so that they can provide the necessary aid and instruction.  It can serve to keep a classroom of students working together as well as allowing for faster and easier lesson planning and making the creation of more interesting and engaging assignments possible.

Classkick makes it possible for any school to use it, featuring tech support for PCs as well as for mobile devices.  While some schools give each student a tablet to use in the classroom and for schoolwork during the school year, students and teachers who do not work at or attend such a school can still use the computers provided to take advantage of Classkick.  Teachers have access to many different educational resources.  They can create paperless assignments including PDFs, images, video, audio, text, and writing they find on the web as well as educational websites themselves, or they can download pre-made assignments available for free.

Learning with Classkick is more fun and interactive for students, who can write, draw, type, upload photos, or record audio according to the lesson’s individual requirements.  It is imperative, however, for a classroom that is not utilizing mobile devices to get system recovery services immediately if a problem arises that would prevent access on school PCs in order for students to continue to take advantage of this.  Whether on PC or tablets, a teacher can put together a lesson or prepare an assignment for students to work on together in class and see everything that each individual student is doing all at once.  Students can provide answers or give feedback, and they can receive help while working silently by alerting a teacher themselves through the system with a single tap.  If a teacher wishes to allow students to help each other, he or she can allow students to see which others need assistance.  It is easy to see how Classkick can work to make classroom learning better.

Twenty20 is a Crowdsourced Photography Marketplace

photo 1_zpspw6qi1se.png Stock photos are an easy and free means of finding an appropriate photo online to attach to a blog, Facebook post, or webpage, among a wide range of uses.   Unfortunately, these stock photos are easy to identify as such, very obviously staged, and may only vaguely convey what you are communicating.  Twenty20 is a startup that looks to change this through crowdsourcing.  It offers what its creators call “the world’s largest crowdsourced image catalog.” Along with solving the stock image issue for users, it provides an opportunity for anyone to upload photos and potentially make money on them.  It provides the added benefit that the photos people can find on the Twenty20 website are much more creative and interesting than the ones typically found on similar websites or through a random image search. People who are seeking photos that they can legally add to their blogs can get a subscription at Twenty20 to purchase some at a lower cost than hiring a photographer, while photographers can display their smartphone photos to big brands and marketing agencies.
