If you are new to techinmusiced.com, welcome! This blog is a free resource for music educators of all kinds as they attempt to bring technology into their teaching. The blog does generate some revenue–when you buy an app from a referral link on techinmusiced.com, a percentage of the app’s (normal) purchase price comes back to the me; and if you buy any of my iBooks from the iBookstore, income is also generated that way. My goal is to remove WordPress’s advertising so that the blog is advertisement-free–something I hope to be able to do through app referral commissions. I want to keep true advertisements off this blog.
On the right hand side of the blog, you will see a number of blog links to other music educators who blog. If you know of a blog that should be listed, but isn’t, please send me an e-mail!
I am presenting two sessions at the Music Education Symposium today. The first is a session on using iPads in General Music. The second (presented twice) is a session all about apps.
The PDF from the session in General Music appears below in PDF format. As a disclaimer, I am not an elementary teacher–and as a result, I have made sure to examine the work of other prominent music educators who use technology at the elementary level. My favorite part of this presentation occurs towards the end where I refer to some of the strategies currently being employed by six elementary music teachers across the country.
