Presentation Description: The new Common Core Standards for the Arts contain many standards involving greater levels of creativity and independence for music education. These standards, coupled with preparing today’s students for an ever-shifting professional landscape that requires more independent and collaborative technology skills, presents America’s traditional secondary performing music ensemble programs with a challenge: how do we still provide high quality performing ensembles and develop the individual students’ musical and creative abilities. Thomas J. West explains how incorporating the SAMR Model of Technology Integration along with cloud-based methods of Blended Learning enables middle school and high school instrumental music students to take control of their own learning and become independent, well-rounded musicians capable of 21st Century Artistry.
