About The Event
Workshop #2: November 13, 2021
Nurturing Musical Growth through Technology and Assessment
Clinician: Aileen Miracle
This workshop will explore how to nurture students’ musical growth through technology and assessment. First, attendees will learn about various tech tools for the music classroom, from Nearpod, to Flipgrid, to Seesaw, with specific examples of how to use each in their music lessons. Lessons for in person and virtual teaching will be shared, to engage, to build relationships, and to assess. Educators will also learn about centers for the music room, to integrate technology, formatively and summatively assess students, and provide students with voice and choice. Attendees will leave the session with many ideas for a variety of grade levels, and a plan for choosing and using tech tools and assessments.
