When clearing out the Student Resources network folder, I came across a copy of Slender. Not knowing what it was, I opened it up and began to explore. I immediately had flashbacks to The Blairwitch Project, the horror movie from the late 1990’s.


Slender is a free download.

A little creepy but engaging. Jay, a Grade 8 student, says, “Trying  playing at night, alone, with the lights out. Watch out.”

Here are some tips that would really help you when you are recording your voice in Garageband.

Author- Yasmin N.
1. When you want to record your voice you should always write down what you want to saybefore recording it because it helps you be organized more better and not make mistakes when recording. Your recording would sound smoother and nicer. 


If you make a mistake when you are recording, keep on going. DO NOT stop. You could always cut/split it and make it nicer later after you finished recording.

3. Always ask the person next to if you can record before recording because if you record at the same time you will hear the person next to you in your recording.

4. If you want to put sound effects inside your Podcast you should insert it in the ‘Jingles’ section.

5. Don’t put the mike too near your mouth or it would sound funny and weird.

6. If you want some music inside the background while you record, you should always make your voice LOUDER than the music.

7. Remember, the PLAY button is NOT for recording. The big red button at the bottom is the recording button. Sometimes you may forget and record NOTHING.

8. You can make a duplicate of your recording by pressing Ctrl while dragging the recording next to it.

9. You can adjust the volume of your recording. At the left you will see the volume picture and then you could make it louder or lower.

How to Make Fun and Amazing Cool Podcasts in Garageband-Chatu

How to Make Fun and Amazing Cool Podcasts on Garageband

  • To have a great podcast, you have to be organized. So you could go to Microsoft word and write what you are going to say.
  • When you are recording, everyone should be quiet, so you can hear you when you record. Also you have to have a clear voice. If you are quiet, then speak up a little. Don’t put the microphone too near. Or your voice would be too loud. Then push the red record button.
  • If you recorded what you wanted, but then you make a mistake, don’t stop, just go on.
  • Delete the parts you don’t want by splitting the track and deleting the part you do not need.
  • If you want background music but it you can’t find it in Garageband, you could drag your files to the Media Brower and drop it. Then you can split the music too, just like you did with your voice.
