From North America to South, Soundtrap Celebrates Expansion in the Americas
At the BETT conference in Mexico City this week, Soundtrap, is reaching out to Spanish-speaking teachers all over the Americas. The online collaborative music and podcast recording studio, is increasingly being embraced by teachers in the US and now teachers in Mexico and Central and South America have the opportunity to test it out.
Soundtrap for Education was made available in Spanish in May 2017. Since then, significant updates were made to advance its use, including adding hundreds of instruments and effects and improving the education admin panel and groups page. In addition, Soundtrap Academy online training was made available to teachers. Soundtrap accommodates all operating systems, which is an important feature at schools across Latin America, in particular schools like the ORT school in Buenos Aires, Argentina, where the students bring in their own devices.
Speaking at the BETT conference, ORT teacher Lio Chulak said, “As an educator, nothing excites me more than seeing students embrace new learning experiences. Because it’s so easy to use and the learning curve is virtually nonexistent, the students took to Soundtrap right away. As an unexpected benefit, the cross-platform distinction enables the students to work on their projects outside the classroom. It’s revolutionary that the kids are collaborating on their projects from home—on their own time.”
Soundtrap is the first cloud-based audio recording platform to work across all operating systems, including the iOS, Android, Chromebooks, Linux, Mac and Windows platforms, enabling users to collaborate on music, podcasts and other audio projects with others anywhere in the world. Soundtrap allows students from the same group to collaborate on audio projects in a safe environment that keeps them invisible to the rest of the internet through its “walled garden” feature. In December 2017, Soundtrap was acquired by Spotify.
In further supporting its commitment to the education sector, Soundtrap is a Microsoft Authorized Education Partner and a Google for Education partner.
