Underestimation

This morning someone asked me how to put music on their Google Apps site...
I normally use Audioboo but this was not appropriate as it requires an account set up. So we looked at the Aviary suite that is linked to Google Apps for Education and chose to make a podcast.. We used the Quantum Tracks sound library in the Mynah app. There you can choose from a range of loops, create a soundtrack and embed an mp3 player on your site like the one below. This took a group of us ten minutes to sort out. Next lesson with Year 6 I skimmed quickly over the process in case anyone was interested, thinking they'd come back at me if they needed. So...half an hour later two-thirds of them had embedded players of their music mixes on their sites. Never underestimate what students can do if they really want to do it....
