Remix and Audio. We will do a few activities that use audio in creative ways--from creating one-minute stories with six sound effects to using ordinary objects as Foley devices. We will also briefly share examples from the world of text and informational skills (such as short interview techniques and audio tours that use remix) these ideas are applicable to grades 4-12.
