Digital media is an increasingly important part of a teacher's arsenal to excite and engage students in music lessons. This book gives a wide variety of practical, creative ideas and activities that you can use to spice up your lessons and find new ways of teaching. It includes advice on mobile phones and tablets, interactive whiteboards, video cameras and other recording devices, and websites such as YouTube and NUMU, as well as issues of e-safety, student behaviour and developing a digital media school policy. In addition, the book is accompanied by more than 20 original 'how to' video guides available online that demonstrate some of the technologies and techniques mentioned in the book.
