Use technology to enhance learning; not replace it.

Technology has improved musical education. According to "Technology in Music" article based on technology, it has created dlp music books. These books help strengthen your mind and are very challenging, according to The Dallas School Of Music. These are called Kore Books. They also developed Jazz books which help strengthen you jazz skills and knowledge.

Jeannine Berube's insight:

I watched that town hall via internet streaming.  Parents and teachers are NOT happy with the NYS CCLS and APPR (teacher evaluation system).  It was a very volatile meeting.  Commissioner King stated that there is "no opting out" of required tests.  My question, what is he going to do about it if parents refuse to allow their child to take them?

Stephanie Wilson's curator insight, March 13, 2014 8:54 AM

This article from Jessica Napoles is fascinating.  As a freshmen at Valdosta State University studying to one day become a choral director, this information is something that comes in handy.  I am sure there will be a class I take that will equip me with the information that I will need to teach my class, but how much is too much when it comes to speaking to your class?  In my opinion, I would think it would depend on the class itself.  Some students in the beginning chorus class may need more verbal instruction than those in the advanced.  I found it interesting as time has gone by that we need less teacher talk than in times past.  I am looking forward to see even more changes when I have the privilege to teach.

Creating Music with iPads - iPad and Technology in Music Education

Creating Music with iPads  - iPad and Technology in Music Education | Music and Common Core Standards | Scoop.it

"One area that I don’t have time to explore very often during the school year is creating music on my iPad. It seems with all the day to day activities of teaching that I totally loose touch with musical explorations and composing. I’ve been taking more time lately to do this and I am floored at what I can do with an iPad and a few apps. I am not going to give you a history lesson here but I will say that at one time in my career I dreamed of creating a wonderful MIDI lab outfitted with computers, keyboards, speakers and mixers for my students to use. That dream never happened because of the crazy cost involved. My dream has been reshaped. Here is what I’ve found…."

Wonderful technological developments, making music creating accessbile and engaging for everyone.

Cristian Barkan's curator insight, December 9, 2013 12:10 PM

I think this is pretty cool, if you have a iPad you can make music by just downloading apps.  You can take a iPad anywhere, you can be bored, or sitting somewhere ust waiting and  you can just pulled out your ipad and start making music and that is of course if you are into music.

Alanis Tittemore's curator insight, December 7, 2014 1:27 PM

The involvement the Apple products has had in the music industry is just amazing. In Mr. Shimmons article, he mentions all the new apps created to make music that sounds somewhat professional at a very low to no cost. This news all that bad considering now humans can teach the youth how to compose music and possibly make it easier to learn instruments. However, it is becoming a growing problem for the industry itself because everyone wants to be their 'own producer' and people are paying less for record labels.

Report credits music education for boosting high-tech communities | Waterloo Record

Report credits music education for boosting high-tech communities | Waterloo Record | Music and Common Core Standards | Scoop.it

This city's focus on live music and technology as key drivers of economic growth received a major boost yesterday when a national study was released here touting the broad-ranging benefits of music education for the digital economy.

 

The Information and Communications Technology Council released the study, called Music — A Catalyst for Technology Hubs and Innovative Talent, in the high-tech heart of this region, The Tannery in downtown Kitchener.

 

Jeff Leiper, the council's vice-president and head of research, said the report is informed by interviews with about two dozen high-tech workers, more interviews with two dozen high-tech firms and a careful review of the findings from many other reports and studies.

 

Leiper said the research strongly suggests that a good music education in childhood leads to creative thinking, critical thinking, better social skills for collaborating with others, higher marks in English, higher marks in math, improved memory, better motor skills, boosts self-esteem and stimulates both halves of the brain — the analytical and artistic sides — better than anything else.

 

Leiper said the research also shows a strong association between lively music scenes and technology clusters.

 

"Jurisdictions around North America, including Kitchener in Ontario and Austin in Texas, make vibrant music scenes an explicit part of their economic development pitches to tech companies," says the report.

Jeannine Berube's insight:

Without music and the other arts, we are creating automatons rather than human beings.  Research has demonstrated over and over that music improves all of the STEM subjects significantly.  Yet, music instruction and participation is ignored.  Can anyone tell me WHY?  I thought education was supposed to be based on research.  Or am I using logic, which apparently NOT allowed in education?
