Elder, Jacob, "Google It! Supplementing Instructional Material in the Secondary Band Classroom with the Google Suite" (2020). Masters Theses. 695.
In order to meet the needs of the students of the 21st century, the traditional methods for teaching in the secondary instrumental music classroom should be updated. The Google Suite coupled with a variety of commonly used instructional music technology programs is one way to modify the traditional classroom to accommodate modern learners. Data from case studies, information on effectively using the Google Suite, and supplemental programs to use for blended instruction are included as resources for the 6th-12th grade band classrooms. Since technology is rapidly changing, the subsequent information and tools provided will be updated continually. Keeping current on the resources available for blended instruction allows secondary instrumental educators to continuously innovate their teaching to meet the dynamic learning needs of their students.
