Technology in the music classroom is a great teaching tool and can be very effective if used properly. Thankfully, both of my student teaching placements have SmartBoards. Unfortunately, in my high school placement I was unable to use the SmartBoard to its full potential because of the structure of the class that my cooperating teacher had set up, but I am looking forward to being able to use it more extensively during my elementary placement.
Below is a PowerPoint review game that I created for 7th grade general music to do a review on rhythmic notation and a PowerPoint for 6th grade general music on musical terms and symbols . Also below is a picture of me using the SmartBoard in a 7th grade general music class during a unit on woodwind instruments.
