Technology in Today's Music Classroom
Active Music Making with Tablets, Projectors, Computers and Interactive Whiteboards
By Manju Durairaj
Grades K-5

Expand learning possibilities with the equipment you already have! Whether you have access to a projector and a computer, or a tablet or a cart of tablets, or whether you have an IWB and multiple tablets, you can create sophisticated activities that not only make the most of existing equipment, but engage every type of student through movement, singing, instrument playing, creating and notating!

Active music educator, in-demand clinician and SMART Certified Trainer, Manju Durairaj provides a wealth of ideas and "how to" activities!

Learn how to:
• Create effective visual charts to explore vocal pathways and movement, and to facilitate note reading,and recorder improvisation.
• Create worksheets, use digital flashcards, render melodic and rhythmic dictation and use tablets to assess, record and save student work into an individualized digital portfolio.
• Explore IWB applications that maximize interactivity. Use pen tools for simple interactivity like tracing quarter rests, use animation features to create interactive xylophones and recorders, and link pages to create question and answer activities or simple games.
• Explore how to use tablets alone or IWBs and tablets in conjunction with each other, while students play instruments, sing, and move to their compositions.
