Maximum Technology in the Music Classroom: Minimum Requirements
Teaching Music, v13 n3 p44 Dec 2005
Music teachers are used to finding creative methods for accomplishing large tasks in spite of overwhelming obstacles, such as an insufficient budget and limited time. Yet, when it comes to incorporating technology into the classroom, many allow these obstacles to get the best of them. Finding ways to use computers in the classroom with limited resources, however, may not be as difficult as teachers think. Many music teachers have a computer on their desks that they use to create assignments, search the Internet, check e-mail, and complete other administrative tasks. This computer can also be used in the classroom for the students, bringing new ideas and activities to inspire and motivate youngsters. In fact, it's relatively easy to take advantage of technology in all types of music classes with only a single computer. The author describes ways of using technology in the classroom.
