So you are using SmartMusic and working on getting students signed up for their accounts. In this process it is going to take a bit of time and there are going to be those students who mess their information up….. I’ve got three tips for you;
1)Go through trial runs on the big screen in class – make all the kids watch for three days while individual students go through and signup on the big screen. Have everyone else write down their own personal info on a piece of paper.
2)Take all the kids into the computer lab (or better yet – bring a portable lab down to your room!) Then pair the students up and have them work on signing up together. This way you have two pairs of eyes on what is being typed into the computer.
3)THEN the big one…. when the kids can not find “their school” realize it is probably because they typed in their zip code wrong! The kicker here is that there may be no way for them or you to fix this because they are not 13 yet! In that case you have to call SmartMusic tech support and tell them the students email of their account and they will reset it for you in a matter of about 3 minutes total!
Good luck and enjoy the extra push that SmartMusic provides for your students to excel!
