Quaver Guide: Student Accounts and Devices
If you use Quaver teaching resources in your classroom, you may be asking yourself: “How can I involve my students?”
The answer really depends on you, the teacher, and is impacted by two things:
- The technology available to your students
- Your interest/comfort level with that technology
There are several ways to involve students with hands-on activities that complement what you’re teaching from your Quaver Program. This guide will walk you through the options to help you dig into QuaverMusic.com with your students in the way that works for you!
Choose the category that best applies to you and your students right now:
- My students do not have QuaverMusic.com accounts
- My students have QuaverMusic.com accounts, but I have not enrolled them in classes in my Quaver GradeBook
- My students have QuaverMusic.com accounts AND are enrolled in a class in my Quaver GradeBook
1. With No Student Account
With very little setup on your part, your students can access Quaver’s Student Interactives like recorder scores, music theory practice, music creation activities, and much more! They don’t even have to create an account at QuaverMusic.com! Here’s how easy it is for your students to access these activities:
- Students pull up the QuaverMusic.com homepage
- Instead of clicking to LOG IN or SIGN UP, they simply click the new STUDENT INTERACTIVES sign on the signpost to the left of the screen
- Next, they enter a class code generated from your Teacher Administration (ANY class code will do. You can simply create one code for all your classes if you like! Here are instructions on creating a class code.)
- They click ENTER and . . .Boom-Chicka-Boom!
Experiment with Student Interactives and, when you’re ready, consider creating student accounts so that you can assign these activities to your students!
2. With a QuaverMusic.com Account
After your students have created their own QuaverMusic.com accounts they can:
- Access Student Interactives by clicking on the STUDENT INTERACTIVES sign on the signpost to the left of the screen and entering a class code generated from your Teacher Administration (ANY class code will do. You can simply create one code for all your classes if you like! Here are instructions on creating a class code.)
- Play/Explore limited areas of the complete QuaverMusic.com website at no cost**
- Access QuaverMusic.com on any computer or on tablets (A Flash-translation app like Puffin Academy is necessary for iPad use)
**QuaverNotes can be purchased by parents/guardians to gain further access to premium items/sounds/experiences on the QuaverMusic.com website. Ask your Quaver Rep for a 100 Note code anytime to distribute to students as an in-class prize. QuaverNotes are NOT required for accounts when enrolled in a class.
After you students are enrolled in a class in your Quaver GradeBook, they will see a STUDENT tab on their QuaverMusic.com street. They can also log into QuaverMusic.com with their username and password on an iPad with no extra app for Flash translation. They’ll be taken directly to their Student Dashboard where they can:
From a personal computer or Flash-enabled tablet, they can also:
- Play/Explore the entire QuaverMusic.com website with no QuaverNotes required during active class session
- Compose original music with cutting-edge Creatives like QGrooves, QBackBeat, QComposer, and more in Quaver’s Studio
- Take the Metro to travel and uncover different musical genre venues
- Compete in QArcade mini-games, contests, and challenges
- Go into Quaver’s Lab to discover the science of sound with QSynth and put sound effects with movies of Quaver in QSoundFX
- Use QSkits to create a script for Quaver’s composer busts to perform in the Shop or paint a composition on a musical canvas with Song Brush
There you have it. Three different levels at which you can transfer the learning happening in your classroom to student devices.
