Join Quaver this Digital Learning Day

If there’s one thing Quaver loves almost as much as music, it’s technology!

He’s joining in the fun as teachers and students across the nation celebrate the Third Annual Digital Learning Day on Wednesday, February 5th!

DigitalLearningDay

This Wednesday, Quaver will be digitally visiting several classrooms around the U.S. via Skype, to join music educators as they bring music to life for their students using technology. But the fun won’t stop there. Quaver wants to send YOUR CLASS a personalized video answer to their most burning musical questions this Wednesday!

Choose the one question your music students are most eager to have Quaver answer, send it our way, and Quaver will e-mail a personalized video answer made just for you and your school!

Maybe your students want to know . . .

  • What’s Quaver’s favorite song to play on the piano?
  • How many days a week did he practice as a kid?
  • Which composer does he wish he could have over for dinner?
  • What’s the best way to remember the notes on the lines and spaces?

No question is too small!

Please submit your school’s question by Tuesday, February 4th at 3PM CST so Quaver has time to answer your students and get the video to you for Digital Learning Day. Please choose just one question per school, and include your name, school name, email address and question in the comments here on the blog. Or email your request to Abby@QuaverMusic.com.

Don’t miss this opportunity to connect with the man behind the music, Quaver himself! 

He can’t wait to hear from you!

How do you get to the kids webpage on a tablet? I am getting this question all the time. I tried on my tablet too and I had no luck.

Thanks!

Hi Jennifer! The site is in Flash, so doesn’t automatically work on Apple tablets (iPads). You’ll need a converter like Photon or a remote display app like Splashtop. We’ve got some good information coming soon on ways to use Quaver on iPads in the classroom! Will keep you in the loop.

Until then, here’s a post on Photon: http://quavermusicblog.com/2013/09/10/how-to-use-quavermusic-com-on-your-ipad-with-the-photon-flash-converter/ and one on Splashtop: http://quavermusicblog.com/2013/05/29/teacher-tips-ipads-in-the-music-classroom/

Let us know how we can help!

St. Albert the Great Students would like to ask you:

-What instruments do you play, and how did you get the ideas to do your videos and start your Quaver program?
Why do you call yourself Quaver?

Thanks so much!

Claude A. Taylor Elementary School students want to know the steps you took to write so many cool songs in the Class Play section? Did you write the lyrics first or the melodies?

Thank you!

Northwood Elementary students from N.D. would like to know if there is really a separate episode for the saxaphone alone and if there could ever be a music version of jeopardy. Quite clever, I thought!

Neat idea! Thanks alot!
