For many classroom teachers, the shift to online learning will require some planning and creativity. School districts are stepping up to provide lessons. For activities teachers – Art, Music, … these prepared lessons can be used. However, this is an opportunity to explore some new ideas for teaching and learning.

For developing and expanding technology supported teaching and learning, we refer to the SAMR model (Substitution, Augmentation, Modification, and Redefinition). Lessons can be shifted from classroom to technology without taking advantage of the additional learning opportunities afforded by the technology. Same learning objectives, same outcomes. Much more interesting and productive are the changes that can be introduced to take advantage of the technology to extend (Modification) and surpass  and transform (Redefinition) the learning inherent in Substitution and Augmentation.

These resources address some of the opportunities for MUSIC teaching necessitated by the Covid-19 required shift to online learning.
