In the 21st Century, learning has been transforming in many different ways. Technology has played a very important role in education, and that has not been any different when it comes to music education. With the shift in the scope of education, especially during this pandemic, technology has played an integral role in reaching and impacting the heart and minds of students. With a new Macbook Pro, I will be able to make use of music creation and video editing software that will give students better resources to engage in while learning remotely. Being able to connect with students in a manner in which they can relate to will have a huge impact on their learning. The new Macbook Pro will also allow me to run music creation software and video conferencing with students simultaneously more efficiently, thus instructing and keeping students engaged with minimal lag and delay. Without the lag, students can have a smoother workflow within their individual/group projects, and will be able to connect with their bandmates in using more resources over a shorter period of time. I will also be able to create higher quality and interactive video lessons through the use of video editing software, to also keep the students' engagement level high. Students will be able to acquire skills they will need to create music, they will be able to view different methods in which music can be created, and they will have resources that I create, catered specifically to their needs. It will foster socialization, creativity, engagement, and efficiency, further develop competency in music, and address the social/emotional challenges remote learning poses, through socialization, creativity, and engagement.
