The kids in our music program are wonderful student musicians. They give countless hours to their school, their community, and their art. Our community places a high value on the role of music education, and the positive lifelong skills that music education provides. Our students work hard at developing their interests into talent, and that talent into art. We have learned the value and importance that music has in our daily lives both in the classroom and out in the world.
I am a band and orchestra teacher with an Education Technology endorsement. I try to go to as many professional development opportunities in both music and ed tech as my schedule will allow. I typically use my school-issued Macbook to take notes, create assignments and assessments and further my professional PLN.
I was recently issued an iPad Pro 10.5 for my use in school.
This has been an amazing tool and is quickly becoming my go-to device of choice. I am asking for a compatible keyboard and case so I can further realize how versatile this iPad is. I am finding that there is a great amount of flexibility in being able to do the same things my MacBook can do, with the added convenience of a tablet. This keyboard, case and cover would be a great help in networking, technology integration, creating products for my students, and more.
