Tools for Using Technology with Integrity in the Orff Classroom by Lisa M. Sullivan

Technology is an important resource in education today. Students are highly motivated by technology. Playing with Improvisation provides the teacher with 10 active music lessons for barred instruments or beginning recorder that encourage improvisation and quality music making through technology. Most of the activities offer more than one developmental option, so you can tailor the lesson to your studentsí ages and abilities.

Each lesson comes with two different well-processed lesson plans, one for use with young students on barred percussion instruments and one for beginning recorder players. Included are tips on how to use the PowerPoint visuals along with advice on how to empower skillful improvisation in your classroom.

Appropriate for use with Interactive Whiteboards or any computer with a projector. The animation is directed totally from the teacher’s computer. All PowerPoints for all variations are included with this product.

Student Recorder Handouts, ready for duplication, are included.
