When teachers receive training on technology, too often the focus is on how to use the gear itself rather than how to teach with it. While it is crucial to be comfortable with technology before using it with students, it is arguably more important to have a clear set of strategies in place on how to best incorporate those technologies into an existing or new music curriculum.
This session will focus on ways to effectively integrate technology into music education by exploring some of the technology based curricula, emerging trends, and essential topics a musician should consider when exploring the use of computers and technology as related to the music experience.
Participants will explore opportunities to creatively integrate technology into general, instrumental and vocal music programs.
Topics will include:
$375 1 (one) Graduate Credit
$295 22.5 PDPs
