Chromebooks provide schools with an inexpensive, simple-to-use solution for accessing online tools and resources that can be easily integrated into the K-12 music curriculum. This course examines myriad free and low-cost cloud-based tools that enhance music teaching and learning, as well as a variety of lesson strategies for immediate use in your classroom. Topics include tools for teacher presentations, including Google Docs and Prezi; streaming music with Spotify and SoundCloud; classroom integration strategies for streaming video services such as TeacherTube and YouTube; creating music notation using Noteflight; using SoundTrap, a cloud-based audio recording and composition tool; and an overview of Learning Management Systems, including MusicFirst. This course is designed for music teachers who have access to a Chromebook as well as those who are working in a 1:1 Chromebook classroom.
