I discovered today in my search for Boomwhackers® resources that The Music Interactive site now has a Boomwhackers® software download. As of January 2011, you are now required to create a username and password to their download site; however, once I easily did that (just follow the online and email instructions), I downloaded and opened this neat little software. It looks something like this….
I have only played around with it briefly, but it seems like it could be a cool tool to use on your whiteboard when starting a Boomwhackers® unit or as a center on student computers.
The cool thing about The Music Interactive’s software is that it runs locally, but does not have to be installed. I will have to play around with it, but I believe you could simply copy the file and save it to each computer you were using. Pretty neat-o!
