Midge Olsen

Minneapolis Public Schools
Reserve Teacher (Music)
Saint Paul, Minnesota
Music Teacher, retired from Minneapolis Public Schools
 
I'm passionate about music technology! In the 20 years I taught for Minneapolis Schools, I was always an early adopter and user of technology. I taught GarageBand to middle grades students beginning with GarageBand 2. I love the interactive musical instruments in the iPad version of GarageBand. Even very young students can create real music instantly. I've used GarageBand and iMovie extensively for assessment as well as teaching. In the last few years I became an enthusiastic user of Promethean interactive whiteboards, and now teach workshops in the use of ActivInspire software especially geared towards music classrooms.
