Reply To: Do you use technology in the band room?
Most of the technology that I use is my own personal equipment. I have my own iPad and I purchased an LCD projector for the band room and I use the iPad and sometimes my own laptop computer to show scores, show videos that are relevant from YouTube, etc. Unfortunately – and I’m sure that you can commiserate with this – there isn’t a whole lot of money being thrown my way for anything, let alone technology.
When I was student teaching, the band director who was my cooperating teacher had a SmartBoard in his room and he projected the daily agenda, he showed a tuner that the students tuned to, he utilized a metronome and also made some quizzes that really utilized the technology of the SmartBoard.
