In this music class at Bearden Middle School in Knoxville, Tenn., technology has become a powerful tool to enhance daily lessons. Students are able to use apps on their tablets to self-assess and improve their practice sessions. The variety of apps available give the class access to tools and resources that they might not otherwise be able to use. Student engagement has increased with the use of these new tools and their ability to support creativity.
