Mobile UC inside & outside the classroom 2/4

Has this ever happened to you? You select random on your playlist and Shazam you hit a song that you know very well but upon a another hear something different, unique and engaging.

I've been a lukewarm fan of the punk rock trio, The Police. But upon further digging I discovered layers of music I never heard over commercial radio. The distinctive marriage of rhythm, bass and guitar provide a unique mash-up of ska, punk, pop and rock. Add in a funky time signature and a catchy guitar riff and it is a completely different presentation of the song. Da do do do ...da da da....indeed!

Turning to mobile, how are we encouraging students to develop, program, build, architect something cool -  relevant and necessary!
