Synthesizing their own outcomes from their prior
Second contact,
What are we trying to do?
How can we do this differently?
Recap and wrap
What are trying to do?
What were past practices?
Finale Notepad was the capstone
of our learning activities.
Timeless skill combining best practices of the pre-20th century,
with the cutting edge of the 21st century.
Getting the bread to rise
Using Final NotePad, musicians transferred
iconographic into standard notion while
engaging and developing inner hearing.
It's time to play "Access your INNER MUSICIAN!"
Culmination through performance
Breaking the bread
All learners were enagong and had sustained focus during the TPACK based unit.
TPACK & Final Notepad for the FIRST TIME allowed students to seamlessly transition from iconographic notation into standard notation.
A music teacher with a
drive to shatter music pedagogues

A fourth grade teacher
with a tech background.
Bridge the gap between iconographic
notion and standard notation while
simultaneously engaging students hearing.
What were past practices?
Development of the staff
and basic melodic and rhythmic sketches
Standardized notation-invention of the
printing press (single pressing 1520).
Sharing music around the globe
American Music education: Aural, rhythm and
solfege syllables, movement, icons, early notations,
standard notation, transfer to pre-band,
band and choir).
What we propose: a new school of blended
learning & best practices from the past, present,
Front load multiple activities through the use of aural, icons, early notation, and movement activities.

Make connections between aural and notation.

Focus on melodic contour and intervals first; staff and letter names second.

Engage and stimulate the hearing process through use of technology

Discovery! Allow students the joy of discovery through the process.

Sharing! Class discussions & performance.

Engaging Learners,
first contact.
Intro melody through Curwen
hand signs, with solfege syllables.
Transitions from solfege to lyrics,
coupled with Curwen hand signs.
Young musicians climb the solfege ladder of success. Through By engaging young musicians at optimal levels of performance; they "flow" from learner to presenter and demonstrator.

Musicians access prior experiences to
generate problem solving skills during a
puzzling activity.
TPACK pulls into focus.
