I am a general music/choral director in a 6-8 middle school. I was just given a few of the makey makey circuit boards to experiment with. From what I can tell by looking at the website and the limited research I have done so far, this looks like something that would be more for elementary students. Does anyone in middle school have any experience with these and if so, how have you implemented their use?
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks for posting on this forum to inquire about this. As I am a general music council representative, I am compelled to give you an answer, although it might not be what you were hoping for. I, personally, have not had any experience with this technology in the classroom. However, there are a number of music technology experts who could probably answer this for you. Amy Burns is one such person (she has a book out specifically for music technology in the classroom. Dr. Jay Dorfman from Boston University is also another resource you might what to inquire with.
Good luck with your search for information!
I used MaKey MaKey with my 8th grade elective class. While it is simple in the set up, the fun is in the creative aspect. What can they turn into a keyboard or a percussion kit? Each class had a different focus- fruit, Model Magic, foil, and then they had to design and create a MaKey room with various stations.
