Technology Integration for the Modern Music Educator

ONLINE:
September 23December 15, 2019

Do you struggle to integrate technology into your rehearsal? Maybe you want to be more intentional and effective with your technology use? Or perhaps you feel like your students know more about technology than you do? This course will prepare you to integrate technology as a way to enhance your teaching and professional development. Discover tools and online software that will help you create practical, engaging lessons and assignments for your students. A portion of the course will be spent on establishing or enhancing your professional learning network (PLN) in the online music education world. This course is geared toward the instrumental or choral teacher who has limited technology experience.
