Session Presenter: Wayne Hoey, Jenkins Middle School
Session Title: Smart Phones In The Band Room?…Why Not!
Session Description: Is your school struggling with a policy prohibiting students the use of smart phones and iPods and at the same time feeling the push to incorporate technology in your classroom? Why can’t we teach students using the mediums most comfortable to this generation? Many of today’s electronic devices have apps to make life’s chores a little less complicated and a little more fun. Learn some of the ways to incorporate technology in the orchestra, choir, band, and general music classes. You will see the value of students (and teachers) who can use iPhones, iPods, iPads, MacBooks, and other smart devices. We will discover scores of apps like metronomes and digital musical instrument tuners. Then explore the myriad of websites to aid in learning and teaching music. The future is here, let’s embrace it!
