We’ve been working hard on some new features that launched this month at QuaverMusic.com. You can find a complete list of updates at  QuaverMusic.com/SiteUpdates, and stay tuned here on the blog for more details over the coming weeks.

Today, we are pleased to introduce some exciting new functionality in the Quaver Curriculum for student mobile devices: Quaver Mobile Interactives!

And what is a Mobile Interactive, we hear you ask?

Quaver Mobile Interactives are web-based activities that can be accessed in conjunction with the curriculum by any mobile web browser, which means they work on both iOS and Android devices. 

These Interactives extend the teaching happening in the front of the classroom onto student devices for application and assessment! They are easy to activate – students simply scan a QR Code from their device – and a natural way to integrate technology into the music classroom.

Mobile Interactive

How can you find them?

The first 32 Mobile Interactives are now live in the Quaver Curriculum – with more coming soon! You’ll come across them naturally in the course of teaching. The TOOLS icon in your Navigation Bar will change to a Mobile Device when an Interactive is available.

How to Find Mobile Interactives

When you see that Mobile Tools Icon, click TOOLS and then MOBILE to pull up a QR Code students can scan to access each Quaver Mobile Interactive on their device.

QR Code

We recommend using the QR Scanner in the QStudent App – available for free from the iTunes App Store and Google Play Store . Alternatively, students can open their browser apps and go to www.QuaverMusic.com/MobileApp and enter the short alphanumeric Quaver code shown on the screen.

The Interactive is then available on the student’s mobile device for a 24-hour session. We believe this will help teachers use technology to allow for student experimentation, composition, and creative exploration in small groups or as individuals.

 

You can search for these Mobile Interactives by typing MOBILE into the Library search field, or reference this complete list of the first batch live now:

Note: Many Interactives appear in multiple instances throughout the Curriculum – you can search the name of the IWB in the Library to find more locations.
