PMED 695 Using Music Technology in the Elementary General Music Classroom

College of Critical & Professional Studies

3 credits 42.0 hours
600 level graduate course

Integrating technology into the general music classroom can seem daunting. With the introduction of interactive whiteboards, iPads, 1:1 programs, and more, it is challenging for an elementary teacher to learn and utilize the given technology into the music classroom. This course offers a variety of approaches and strategies for using existing and emerging innovative technologies with your elementary-level students. We will focus on applications that could work in a one-computer classroom, a classroom with access to iPads or Chromebooks, and 1:1 classrooms, where each student has a device. With creativity and practical application as a focus, course participants will use, apply and develop lessons that can immediately be integrated into any daily curriculum.
