Last week my Sydney Conservatorium of Music Technology in Music Education (#SCMtech) students handed in their main project, worth 50% of the course marks. It’s an interactive iBook, designed for elementary or middle school music education, but also you’ll find they’ve shared equivalent resources to be printed or burned onto CD for schools that don’t have iBooks programs. The marking rubric puts the focus on content, but rewards design and presentation as well as innovative use of the technology.
The students are sharing the iBooks and other resources from their websites, also created as part of the course. You can download them for free and use them in your own teaching or to teach yourself/your students at their own pace. The following list represents hundreds of hours of work so please reward these talented students by posting feedback on their pages if you like their work.
Disclaimer: As part of this course students learn about copyright, creative commons, correctly crediting authors and school licensing. The legal “hard-lines” are explained, and the “grey areas” too. Therefore there shouldn’t be any use of copyright material in the following resources, but if there is, it is the responsibility of the student who has published it, and educational use is assumed.
