Gong Xi Fa Cai! CISM welcomed the Year of the Wooden Horse with a Chinese cultural show. Presentations ranged from dances, skits, songs, to martials arts demonstration. It was a showcase of students’ talents and Chinese culture.
Of course, the part of the program that I will particularly brag about is a perfect example of how tradition is relived with technology. Gr. 9-10 students played traditional folk songs using GarageBand on iPads. Although it was an arduous task for the students to put the songs together, it was quite a reward in the end. One couldn’t even recognize that the songs were completely performed using iPads. Truly, technology integration at its best!
In celebration of the Chinese New Year last week, 5th graders created stories using ComicLife on how they celebrate the occasion in their respective homes.
