for the Boyer College
College of Music and Dance recently added two high tech "smart" classrooms to its classroom
facilities, bringing the total number of computer-equipped
multimedia teaching classrooms in the College
to four. Additionally, the College houses a number of computer laboratories with multiple workstations for faculty and student projects and teaching in music and dance.
classrooms are computer workstations
that consist of an instructional teaching podium
equipped with multimedia hardware
and software to enhance the learning
experiences of music and dance students at Temple.
Thus, Boyer College of Music and Dance students
enjoy the benefits of learning from faculty who
teach classes using state-of-the-art multimedia equipment. For example, using high-speed Internet
connections in the classroom, professors can
project live, real-time searches of the World
Wide Web onto a large screen in the front of
the room or present multimedia lectures and demonstrations using the workstation.
the equipment located in one or more of the "smart" classrooms include:
- Power Mac G4 and G5 multimedia-enhanced computers
running OS X
- High-speed T1 Internet access
- Document cameras that enable professors to
project images from a document cart onto the
large screen in the front of the classroom.
Scores and other documents can be projected
at a magnification that everyone in the class
can view simultaneously.
- CD/DVD players
- VCR players
- Cassette players
- Laptop hookups
- MIDI keyboards for music synthesis
- Electronic Whiteboard that projects onto the large classroom screen whatever the instructor writes or draws on the Whiteboard
