Instructional Ideas

  1. Teachers can give students a list of terms that they are required to know. One way students can begin to familiarize themselves with the notes is by looking up their definitions using this app.
  2. Teachers can use this app for a review of terms before a test. To do so, the teacher can play a note, show an example of the term, or present a term in another format. Next, students must search this app for the term. The first student who can successfully load the term into his/her device is the winner of the round.
  3. Teachers can assign students a musical term. Students will then have to look up the term’s definition using this app. Next, students will have to create a Frayer Box for the term using an Artwork Production app. In the box, students will need to put the term in the middle, its definition of the term on the top left, a picture of the term on the bottom left, an example of when/how the term is used on the top right, and explain how the term is used on the bottom right. Students can print their work when finished or send it to their teacher via email for grading.
