The purpose of this brief paper and presentation will be to propose and discuss a research-based conceptual framework for pre- and in-service music educators to utilize when integrating technology into music classes and rehearsals. Technological Pedagogical and Content Knowledge (TPACK) is a model that provides a way to conceptualize how technology can be effectively integrated into teaching and learning. This presentation will engage attendees in consideration of the dynamic relationships among content, pedagogy and technology when contemplating primary music learning outcomes related to creating (composition and improvisation), performing (singing and playing instruments), and responding (knowledge of, listening to) music. Suggestions of ways in which pre- and in-service music teachers can develop TPACK will be provided and the importance of a disposition of “adaptive expertise” will be discussed.
