My Students

Our school is home to a great group of kiddos. We have roughly 400 students here, and our attendance remains pretty constant. Most of our families here struggle financially and because of this our school qualifies for many extra resources. Many of the students here have grown up knowing each other and also have extended family related to or in connection with each other. There is a very close bond between many of the students here at our school. We are about 20 minutes away from the nearest town, and our little community has a few stores and the most delicious pizza anywhere on the peninsula! Most families that live out here and attend our school do not venture too far. We are very close-knit.

I am hoping to supply them with a small set of iPads to use in the classroom.

Incorporating a technology component would allow a student to learn, practice, and create/express music suited to their personal styles and levels and also share with others. It allows them some private work time on both skills and creativity.

My Project

Students will be further engaged in music with the help of iPad technology for composing and practicing music skills in the classroom. I want to bring technology to a higher level in my music classroom by incorporating the use of iPads. Many students today learn with technology, and the music classroom is a step behind in this learning curve.

I believe iPads will increase their knowledge level of music skills they are learning, increase their desire to work on those skills, and further their learning by composing and creating work technologically to be saved and shared with others.

Students are currently working with iPads in their regular classroom, so I believe that incorporating them into the music room will be a logical next step to heighten their learning.
