Hit the drums in primary schools
At the end of 2016, I got to know the bOdrums during a training course on the subject area DaZ (German as a Second Language) in Kiel and was immediately impressed by the variety of possible applications. That same year, we made the decision to establish this instrument at our school. The Auenwaldschule Elementary School Böklund is a primary school with music and sports profiling. We are DaZ-Zentrum and have another mainstay in the language teaching of English, Danish and Low German. So the bOdrums fit into our educational concept in many ways.
For sports and music lessons
They can be used as sports equipment and our students can physically "pump out" with a lot of fun and musical support. As well they are offering a unique variation of rhythm training to the musicians among our colleagues and thus supporting them in the teaching of note values. In fact, bOdrumming allows a combination of musical action without long waiting times for individual groups of students. Starting from a very low threshold, they help our language facilitators to form unfamiliar sounds and words, and to dare to speak these new words, given the uniform sound of drums in the classroom. You are never alone in the focus, but achieved a high percentage of speech in a school lesson.
