Lake Orion teachers are using technology in innovative ways to teach students. Carpenter and Webber Elementary music teacher Dakotah Cooper, for example, approached a music education professor at Oakland University to help him integrate iPads and Garage Band software into his curriculum for lower and upper elementary students. OU has loaned the iPads to Mr. Cooper and the university’s music education students visit his classroom weekly to observe how the elementary students compose music using technology. This allows students to use what they learn about musical form, affect and texture to easily create compositions in small groups. Cooper said his students also compose music at home and bring it to class to share.
