The 21st Century Music Educator: Concepts and Techniques (ONLINE)
Music teachers are working in school environments affected by new concepts of educational reform, a panoply of digital technologies, and various levels of austerity brought about by declining sources of public and private funding. This class examines the impact of reform efforts on teachers' lives, with emphasis on core standards in academic areas and in the arts; data based assessment of student learning and growth; new models of teacher accountability; and ways of increasing student engagement through project-based learning. Throughout, low cost and no-cost digital resources with be used and there will be a continual emphasis on the value of working with students' social and emotional learning in mind. Teachers and students will work in small on-line teams to create projects relevant to their life and work as contemporary music teachers.
