Technology Strategies -- National Music Standard #8

Grade Levels: K - 12

Understanding relationships between music, the other arts, and disciplines outside the arts


Student Use of Technology


Students can use educational software to help discover relationships between music and the other arts and disciplines. The Internet allows students to locate and collect information about the arts and other disciplines. Sites are available which display information about art, dance, theater, and the academic disciplines. Because the Internet includes text, sound, graphics, and video, students may view paintings, ballet and dance performances, operatic and theatrical performances, and listen to related music.

Using multimedia authoring software students can create class projects and presentations. They can be organized to demonstrate how the arts and other disciplines relate to music.
