Using iPods in Dance Pedagogy
Block, Betty A.
Journal of Physical Education, Recreation & Dance (JOPERD), v79 n7 p25-28 Sep 2008
Today's "Net Generation" is used to instant access to information that is wireless and mobile. There is so much information that students can access on their own that class time can be saved for things technology cannot teach, such as personal interactions, dance etiquette, and partnering. Technology should not be a substitute for personal and social interactions with students, but an iPod can be a valuable teaching tool, even in dance. It allows students to practice at home with the same music the teacher uses in class and to listen to cues as many times as they need to gain understanding. If used properly, this technology allows more class time to be spent socializing, interacting, and practicing. This article details methods for using iPods to successfully deliver dance content to students. (Contains 1 table.)
