How the iPad has/will change the music classroom
I polled my students. Some results:
The apps on the iPad helped me learn.
This should be setting off bells everywhere.
The iPad helped me discover new music that I wouldn't normally listen to.
A great tool for music teachers?
I wish my textbooks were on the iPad.
Big, big money is about to get involved. Will most teachers be expected to create their own materials? I know I am expected to.
I am waiting for two more big grant announcements. I know that I will be getting the iPad2 (or 3?) in the next year. I need it mainly for the mirroring. I also will explore the MIDI and recording aspects. I hope to use an iPad to record school games, concerts, and events. We will become more mobile, more accessible, and more fun.
I also hope to scan music into the iPad. I never got to that this year.
Nobody in my department can envision working without the iPads.
