Discover ways to reinvent student assignments, create interactive displays around your school and new ways to teach music history. Using QR codes - small barcodes that can be read by your smart phone or iPad - you can combine audio recordings, videos, written or spoken text, website links and online maps with physical items like worksheets, posters and signs around your school. Learn how you can teach music history and styles through an interactive musical treasure hunt. Or how students can create multimedia posters that incorporate links to web pages and online videos. We’ll also look at ways to incorporate printed or digital music notation with audio and video: student compositions that include audio of themselves speaking about their compositional process, or a recording of a performance of their work. Lastly, we’ll use QR codes to make simple “”instant response”” quiz questions that can be answered by students quickly and easily from their iPad or smartphone using Google forms.
