Video Grading : Learners Lunch @ Music

Did you know that you can easily use free software to provide verbal, even musical feedback to students? Written comments on student work can be helpful, but have you ever wished you could just talk to each student individually? Or sit down at the keyboard and play each student through an example? Or point to the score while singing or playing that passage? Video grading lets us do all of those things, and for the most part it is easy and fast. Come to this workshop to learn more.
