USING GARAGE BAND TO RECORD A PODCAST

Follow the Steps below to record your podcast:

  1. Rehearse your speaking points/recording before you start!!!
  2. Open Garage Band on an iPad:
      • Click the “+” sign on the top right corner to start a new audio recording
      • Select “Audio Recorder”, then “Voice”

  1. Follow these IMPORTANT instructions to make sure the settings are correct:
      • VERY IMPORTANT: in top right corner, click the “+’ symbol.  Click on “Section A”, and toggle the “Automatic” button.  This will ensure you record until you press stop; otherwise you’d only record 8 bars before recording stops.

 

 

 

 

 

 

      • Select “Radio Ready” from Vocal selection
      • Press the “metronome” symbol (looks like a triangle with a stick), so that it is grey, not blue. If it is blue, you will hear the metronome clicking throughout your recording.

  1. Find a quiet space.
        • If you are working on your own, it’s best if you connect headphones to iPad that have built-in microphone, like the Apple earbuds.
        • If recording with a small group, go somewhere there’s not a lot of noise to record.
  1. Follow these steps to record:
      • When you are ready, press the record button (red dot at the top of the screen) to begin recording. Press the stop (square button) when you are finished.
      • You can stop and start with your recording but make sure your cursor is where you left off when recording! It will always count you in from 4 so don’t start talking right away!
      • At any point in type you can press the “undo” arrow, which will delete everything and start over.

  1. When you’re done:
      • When you are done, Click “My Songs” on the top left corner
      • Press your file once (or hold for 3 seconds) to rename your file- rename to your class and group names (i.e.: 8T Bob, Larry, Junior)
      • Press your file again now to ‘share’.  Select “SONG” not project.
      • Select High Quality.  Airdrop to Mrs. Jenden’s Macbook

Citing books & websites

At your survival fair, you’ll need to submit a list of sources you used for your project.

The title will be WORKS CITED, and you will list all your sources alphabetically by author.

Please remember to keep track of the following information for every book or website source you use:

BOOKS:  Author, book title, city book was published, publisher, date of publication, pages you found the info on.

WEBSITE:  Author, title of article or video, title of website, date published, exact web address.

Once you have the information, you can create your MLA citation by copying these formulas exactly, including punctuation.

Book formula:

Last name, first name.  Book Title. City of publication: Publisher, year.

Website Formula:

Last name, first name. “Title of article or video”.  Website title.  Date published.  Exact web address.

Other hints:

  • indent every line after the first line four spaces only
  • if there is more than one author, include the name of the first author, and add “et. al.” after to indicate there’s more authors.     ie.  Rowling, J.K. et. al.
  • if someone has a PhD, include it after the first name:  Osborne, Jamie, PhD.
  • if there is more than one city, use the first city noted.
  • Worldbook and Brittanica will create your citation for you- select “Cite this” and “MLA style” and it will create a citation for you.
  • Keep a working list of sources you use on a Word document
  • you can use www.bibme.org to create your list of citations, once you have collected all your source information.  Select, “MLA” format, and “create citations”, then choose either “book” or “website”.
