  1. Music & Technology Eric, Huguette and Mark

  2. Lesson Plan Summary Subject: Music Grade: 8 Curriculum areas: Music, Science, Language Art and Technology

  3. Curriculum Outcomes • Music • GCO 1: Students will explore, challenge, develop, and express ideas, using the skills, language, techniques, and processes of the arts. • 8.1.3 demonstrate an understanding of the elements of music using appropriate terminology • 8.1.8 compare the sound and structure of major and minor scales and triads as they relate to the keyboard.

  4. Cross-Curriculum Link • Physical science: Sound • Sound Vibrations • - relate vibrations to sound production (303-10) • Pitch, Loudness, and Sound Technology • - use the term “decibels” correctly in descriptions of sound intensity(104-6) • The Ear, Hearing Loss and Noise Pollution • - identify the positive and negative effects of technological devices that produce loud sounds and identify the need for protection from loud sounds to prevent hearing loss (108-1, 206-9)

  5. Cross-Curriculum Link • English Language Arts • GCO 8: Students will be expected to use writing, and other forms of representation to explore, clarify, and reflect on their thoughts, feelings, experiences, and learnings; and to use their imaginations • - 8.3 begin to use various forms of note making appropriate to various purposes and situations

  6. Technology Outcomes: • ISTE Standards – NETS-S • 1. Creativity and Innovation • a. Apply existing knowledge to generate new ideas, products, or processes • 2. Communication and Collaboration • b. Communicate information and ideas effectively to multiple audiences using a variety of media and formats

  7. Technology Outcomes: • 3. Research and Information Fluency • b. Locate, organize, analyze, evaluate, synthesize, and ethically use information from a variety of sources and media • d. Process data and report results • 4. Critical Thinking, Problem Solving, and Decision Making • c. Collect and analyze data to identify solutions and/or make informed decisions

  8. Technology Outcomes: • 5. Digital Citizenship • c. Demonstrate personal responsibility for lifelong learning • 6. Technology Operations and Concepts • d. Transfer current knowledge to learning of new technologies

  9. Learning Objectives: • By the end of this unit, students will have a better understanding of: • 1. Listening vs. Hearing Music • 2. Measurement of Sound and other components and • Hearing Safety • 3. Music and Decibel Measuring • 4. Good Vibrations

  10. Student Prior Learning (Subject Content): • Students have learned about sound • They have knowledge of decibels, decibel • measurement, hertz, and frequency • They have a basic understanding of sound and • structure of major and minor scales and triads as • they relate to the keyboard

  11. Student Prior Learning (Technical): • Students have previously used mobile devises or • ipads • Students have previously learned to read music • Students have previously learned to recognized • musical forms

  12. Introduction: • Discussion question: “Sound is music”, agree or disagree and why? Students should be able to explain what they think is the difference between hearing and listening. • Do a quick review of decibels and reference to the handout showing the various examples of decibel measurement.

  13. Lesson introduction: • Discussion question: “Sound is music”, agree or disagree and why? Students should be able to explain what they think is the difference between hearing and listening. • Do a quick review of decibels and reference to the handout showing the various examples of decibel measurement.

  14. Learning Activity: • The teacher will: • Explain the activity to the students • Verify that every group has downloaded the free app called for Android, Sound Meter by Smart Tools Co. for iPod, Decibel 10 by SkyPaw Co. Ltd. • Circulate in the classroom and take anecdotal notes and assess students as the lesson unfolds.

  15. Learning Activity: • Students will: • Listen to Haydn’s “Surprise Symphony” and follow along the melody line on the handout or the computer. • Listen to the symphony again and they will measure the “high” volumes/peaks of Haydn’s “Surprise Symphony” using their mobile device. Students will record their decibel measurement. . They will contrast the high with the low volumes in the work (see music map) and share their measurements.

  16. Learning Activity cont… • Listen to the symphony at a louder volume. They will record their new data. • Critical Thinking: Through discussion students will then come up with ideas as to why their readings are not all the same. (Various factors could be proximity to speakers, how they held their device, other interruption of sound, sound pressure, volume setting on amplifier (after playing work twice). They will also propose possible solutions for more accurate measurement.

  17. Lesson conclusion: • Ask students if hearing damage is possible from listening to classical music. Making reference to hearing and ear safety from the previous lesson evoke a discussion about using their measurement application in different locations/experiences throughout their day – when are there times their hearing safety could be jeopardized? • Should a sound engineer at a rock concert be responsible for checking the sound decibels throughout the concert?

  18. Assessment of student learning: • Listening journal - students demonstrate their understanding of the elements of music. The teacher will assess the journal using a rubric • Data collected will be represented in the format of their choice. The teacher will assess presentations.
