By having five tablets in the music classroom, my students will be able to take advantage of all of the available online music education tools. First of all, my students can work in small groups to play music theory games. Online games, such as "Staff Wars," "Rhythm Blocks," and "Incredibox," just to name a few, reinforce fundamental music skills (such as note-naming, rhythm reading, and instrument identification) in a way that is appealing to students. What I am most excited about is that the tablets will enable students to notate, record, and share their own compositions. By capturing their work digitally, students can create portfolios that showcase their creativity and demonstrate their musical growth. 4th and 5th grade students, who learn how to play the recorder, will specifically use the tablets for a site called "See-Saw." Here, they will record audio, take photos, and create videos of them playing their recorder songs. This eliminates the need for students to stand up and play their songs in front of the entire class, which--for most students this age--can be very nerve-wracking and embarrassing. By recording themselves on a video and submitting their work to me digitally, students can capture what they consider to be their best work, then look back and reflect on their progress to see how their playing has improved. The tablets will enable my 5th graders (who learned how to play the recorder last year) to become teachers. Using digital tools and the "See-Saw" platform, 5th graders will compose music for the 4th graders to learn when they start to play the recorder. The 5th graders will create tutorial videos that show the 4th graders exactly how to play their work and give the younger players tips and advice on how to improve their playing. The possibilities are endless!
