I have the joy of seeing when students log in and what they are composing. I also have the ability to comment on their work and give them feedback. We haven't used the program for a class project yet, but I've give students their login information and have highly encouraged them to GO EXPLORE!
This morning, I was thrilled to see that Ethan has been active in his account. He took a theme that he enjoyed and experimented with notating it! Then I found out that Ethan was sharing his account with his brother Nathan so that he could also compose- how NICE! Students like these are exactly the reason I wanted Fry to purchase the individual student accounts in Noteflight. I am not expecting every student to grab a hold of this on an incredible personal level (though all my 5th graders will use it for a class project later this year). But if ONE student's life is changed because he/she had the OPPORTUNITY to learn to use composition software at a young age, then it's worth every penny.
I am SO proud of Ethan and Nathan, and I can only imagine what exploration this early on in their lives will do for theme down the road!
