Digital Assessment Tools for the Band, Orchestra & Choral Director
Integrating technology can save time, enhance the learning experience, and be used as an assessment tool for your music students. In this course, we will focus on free online tools that will help assess student learning in your ensembles, and how to effectively integrate technology in both an e-learning environment and in the rehearsal space. Special emphasis will be on using digital tools in schools with a 1:1 device program (Chromebook, tablet, etc.) and the e-learning environment.
