Teaching, Learning, and Living with iPads

Music Educators Journal Volume 100, Number 1, ISSN 0027-4321


Tablet computers, engaging and dynamic teaching and learning tools, are increasingly prevalent in K-12 schools and university settings. To help music educators make informed technology choices for their classrooms, this article contains preservice teachers' reflections on how they used iPads to enhance their musicianship, teacher preparation, and/or work with students in their practicum or student teaching placements. Categories of use include rehearsal/performance assistance, creating music, teaching instruments, providing virtual instruments, audio/video recording, listening resources, and organizational support. Teaching suggestions, lists of recommended apps, and potential sources of funding for the purchase of tablet computers are included.
