Overview

Today's music teachers are caught in a conundrum about technology - while all are interested in it and told to utilize it in music instruction, a lack of equipment and funding act as enormous barriers to technology access. In fact, studies indicate that the mere perception of these obstacles may be partly responsible for the gap between these teachers' interest in technology and the lack of technology integration in the classroom. As a result, students potentially miss out on active, hands-on music technology instruction at school. In Practical Music Education Technology, veteran music educators Rick Dammers and Marjorie LoPresti help music teachers introduce technology into the classroom by providing accessible strategies to support and enrich students' musical learning. The authors highlight a plethora of free online tools at teachers' disposal, and provide options that can be flexible for all school environments and types of teachers - from those with large budgets to those operating on a shoestring, from those well-versed in technology to non-experts. Each chapter outlines pedagogically appropriate resources and strategies that facilitate, support, and enhance music learning, performance, and creation. Additionally, model lesson plans featuring classroom-tested uses of technology aim to empower student engagement while also keeping music learning goals at the forefront. All teaching ideas presented can be tailored to individual teachers' needs and preferences, making Practical Music Education Technology an essential guide to music technology for the everyday music teacher.

Reviews

Practical Music Education Technology is just that, an up-to-date, comprehensive overview of solution options and applications for use of technology in any music education setting. This resource is extremely valuable for music education practitioners regardless of their prior knowledge and abilities. It is also an essential guide to help meet the needs of technology requirements in music teacher preparation programs. * Keith Dye, Texas Tech University School of Music * In this well-organized and definitive guide, Dammers and LoPresti have left no stone unturned in their examination of music and education technology tools and ways they can be used in K-12 music classrooms to effectively support teaching and learning.This resource is valuable for both the pre-service and in-service teacher seeking to broaden their understanding of music technology integration and offers solid guidance on how to choose the best technology to meet pedagogical needs and outcomes. I highly recommend this for all K-12 music educators! * Stefani Langol, Berklee College of Music *
