Technology-Enhanced Creativity in the Music Classroom
Clinician(s): Chad Zullinger
One of the many ways in which technology has enhanced music teaching and learning is the development of digital tools to create, perform, respond, and connect. Digital and virtual technologies can serve as pathways that allow students the opportunity to engage in various roles through musical understandings as performer, composer, arranger, or producer. These learning environments are characterized by relatively low barriers to artistic engagement, peer-mentoring, multiple opportunities for creating, sharing, and meaningful social connection. This presentation will share ideas and lesson plans you can facilitate with your students to create remixes, mashups, and original music that use digital and virtual technologies. Participants are encouraged to bring a device to this session.
