Chromebooks in Elementary Music Class: Day 5 Highlight

This week at Central Connecticut State University (CCSU) has been amazing! The music educators taking the course were phenomenal presenting their “Show What You Know” presentations on the final day of class. In addition, the collaboration between Scott Watson’s Elementary Band Course, Missy’s Neuroscience and Elementary Music and Music Course, and my course was inspiring. It reminded me that collaboration across the curriculum speaks volumes and is a powerful learning tool. Plus, Scott and Missy are excellent and dedicated music educators.

1:1 Chromebooks in the Elementary Classrooms: Days 3 and 4

The days are flying by this week. By Wednesday, (hump day), I can see the educators becoming mentally exhausted and I can understand why. At the Central Connecticut State University (CCSU) Summer Music Institute, music educators have the opportunity to take two classes in one week and receive a total of four credits. This is amazing. When I earned my Masters of Science in Music Education at CCSU, I did this often. It meant some very long days and obtaining a lot of knowledge in a short period of time.

1:1 Chromebooks for Elementary Music: Day 2

The teachers in my course are rockin‘ it! Their students are so lucky to have them as they are teachers who understand that students learn in multiple ways and that our goal is for every student to be able to create and make music.

Highligh from Day 2

I feel that the highlight from Day 2 would be how to utilize Chrome Music Lab and Groove Pizza in any grade level. Younger students can sing and create melodies with it, even with one device and a screen/SMART Board in the room.

Each day, I will post one highlight from the course. Monday’s was finding all of the accessibility hacks on the Chromebook. When I went to ISTE, I saw Lisa Thumann present on this topic and she was so nice to give me permission to share her presentation with the class.

Great Monday at #ISTE2019!

It has been over a decade since I have been at an International Society for Technology in Education (ISTE) conference. This year, it is being held within driving distance and my school was wonderful to support me attending the conference. When I worked it a decade ago, I was able to roam the exhibit floor, but I was not able to attend any sessions. Today, I wanted to remedy that and was able to learn a lot of tech skills and ideas that I can immediately implement.

ISTE Certification: Day 2

ISTE Certification Day 2 was another excellent, thought provoking day! Though I am mentally exhausted as I write this, I am also feeling rejuvenated. The content from today challenged me and made me rethink the way I consider standards in regards to lesson planning.

Pedagogy

The second day continued to focus on the pedagogy of teaching with technology. We continued to follow the approach found in Liz Kolb’s Learning First, Technology Second. As we collaborated together to evaluate standards and lesson planning, I was reminded that when we include a technology standard, the students should be fully achieving the standard.

How To Find Balance With Technology and Making Music in the Elementary Music Classroom

Recently, a popular music magazine sent out a message that they were changing their platform. They would no longer provide a supplemental music magazine with additional digital resources. They would instead offer a new “online tool that will have a dynamic new digital platform designed for today’s teachers and students.”

This announcement brought about many mixed emotions from numerous elementary music education boards. Many were concerned about the price because after the first year, the price increase was significant.
