The technology(ies) that was (were) utilized: Smart Music and a Computer or Peripheral that supports the Smart Music app through a browser.

 

Cognitive process dimension according to Bloom’s Taxonomy: Students are involved in the following cognitive process:

  • Performing musical literature

  • Evaluating performance

  • Inspecting and analyzing the score for right or wrong notes

  • Applying corrections to wrong performances

 

Student-centered or teacher-centered learning:

            *The instructional video is teacher-centered. The practice is completed student-centered.*

 

Student-centered learning:

  • Once they can navigate the software, it is student-centered.

  • Software will analyze “correctness” of the performance.

  • Through teacher settings, students can retake tests until they reach their desired grade.

 

Opportunity to refine:

  • Student shared performances (I’d use Flip Grid)
