The MaKey MaKey Chord Board

The MaKey MaKey Chord Board is one of the tools that can be made using the MaKey MaKey Musical Construction Kit. This tool can be used by teachers in the classroom and by students in the classroom or at home to teach and reinforce chord theory concepts and practical applications. Students can use the MMCB to explore chordal music on their own or use it to complete activities assigned by a classroom teacher. Using the onboard sound recording functions of Scratch, students can record their own explorations and reflect on their experience. Teachers can access these recordings to evaluate student progress and understanding.
