Musical Train

IMG_0426

Today the great groups of children at Toronto Nursery joined in for sessions led by Musician Dave Trouton and Hippotrix workers Jonathan & Simone. Nursery teachers and assistants again used this as a training experience and the workshop musical activities were repeated with other groups at nursery during the week. The children loved the warm up music games which they were familiar with and then we all went on a musical train journey, where everybody started to create sounds using mouths and shakers along with guitar to visit imaginary stops introduced through developing wireframe, including a building site and home environment. More train stop locations and experiences are planned for next time – which will help us with sound recording for the app.

Review

A big assessment  on where the wireframe has got to and how it might best work for toddlers. Keeping the app fun, and trying to include the idea of taking risks but staying safe. Lots of new ideas but also good work on sorting  problems with the overall concept.  Continuing in balsamiq we added a “reward” concept to the end in the form of a smiley face…

Musical Toddlers

135-sims-7820bToday the energetic nursery children at Toronto Nursery joined in for sessions led by Musician Dave Trouton and with support from Hippotrix workers Jonathan & Simone. Nursery teachers and assistants used this as a training experience. The children warmed up with music games while we all got to know each other and then we all went on a musical train journey, where everybody used shakers along with a guitar to visit imaginary stops, like beach and farm. More train stops are planned for next time which us teenagers are planning with the app wireframe!!
