"With a goal to increase literacy development and student engagement, I would like to incorporate my school-issued iPad in the creation of dynamic visual and audio activities within the Lower School music classroom. Projected images and aural excerpts will enrich classroom sessions in which students participate in kinesthetic and hands-on learning activities. Within the current curriculum, all grade levels learn the language of music by reading, writing, singing, playing instruments, moving, notating, improvising, composing, and analyzing. In addition to a wealth of musical activities, all children complete one rhythmic and one pitch composition each year in their general music class."
