This project demonstrates how mobile learning can be embedded into an undergraduate course in popular music and society at the Education University of Hong Kong. Students learn how to play drum sets, electric bass, and electric guitar on the application GarageBand on i-pad as a mobile music creation in class. This project explores the process of group creativity in popular music education in mobile music through (1) creation, (2) co-creation, and (3) re-creation to engage the students in learning popular music in a classroom setting. This kind of group learning activities can pave the way in learning different tracks and layers of popular music in context by using application GarageBand as a virtual instrument. The creative process of group creativity was video-recorded and analyzed by the researcher to have a deeper understanding of the educational values, learning outcomes, and communication skills from students during the process of learning and re-creating. Group interview data were collected and used to formulate how the workflow of mobile learning engaged the creative process in group creativity.
