Nolan, Karin K.
General Music Today, v22 n2 p3-11 2009
Interactive whiteboard use is rapidly becoming a popular and effective teaching tool in classrooms; this article explores specific uses within music classrooms. Not only do these boards prepare students to function in a technological world, they offer myriad creative uses within the music classroom, allowing for enhanced interaction, instruction, and assessment. The use of interactive whiteboards--similar to large touch-screen tablets linked to computers--allows teachers to plan lessons using technology appropriate for all age levels, abilities, and learning styles. This article presents current research on interactive whiteboard use, numerous teaching ideas for general music educators, and two full-length music lesson plans demonstrating interactive whiteboard use.
