Daily, music technology is inspiring and engaging students in the classroom! Music game technology and music video games are impacting and paving the way to innovative education practices. The opportunities are endless for bringing the love of music to students.
For years there has been controversy and the question of whether or not music game technology gets in the way of music teaching. Sometimes the reason stems from a lack of proper equipment and resources in the classroom. Another factor of the controversy can be caused by teachers who are hesitant or not yet skilled with music game technology. Whatever the reason, music game technology is excelling and here to stay, especially at MusicEDU!
Teachers, you no longer have to feel hesitant to supply your students with technology-rich music game curriculum. MusicEDU has already done the development so you can focus on the delivery.
The GameComposer program consists of a digital ebook and website resources; plus, as teachers have come to expect from the MusicEDU programs, all the resources that are required to use the programs have been included, making it easy to integrate into a current program or run as a stand-alone unit of work. You’ll find all the support videos, YouTube clips, extension activities, assessment ideas and revision quizzes already done and organised for you on the GameComposer website portal.
Utilising the latest music game technology, the MusicEDU GameComposer program is effective, easy to understand, comprehensive and engaging. GameComposer is designed to easily integrate the use of game technology into the classroom environment.
