Keeping Student Attention onlineMy students and I have discovered that on Skype we can open the chatbox and search for emojis, emoticons, and Gifs. We started out using these to replace stickers for music well played but then it was so much fun to use the search tool to find any theme one would want...that I started using these in-game formats. I would post a Gif and then the student had to guess which piece the video described the best...this guessing game made moving from one kind of assignment to another really fun. I used emoticons to ask students to play their scales in different ways (laughing = fast, crying = slow, etc) or to even distinguish between major and minor keys. When working on phrasing, I would find an emoji that would represent a feeling and we would build a storyline or narrative of a piece with these images for more expressive playing. When working on a piece in sections, I would find silly alphabet letters to label the sections in our chat and then we would practice the piece with sections mixed up by watching for the next alphabet letter I would post virtually. And of course, we use them to sign off from each lesson, thus affirming the lesson was fun. I think we will miss these icons when we are back in the studio for lessons!
