CBS: Students with Autism Make Music on iPads

CBS Sunday Morning brings us some feel-goods to start off the week! Public school teacher Adam Goldberg championed iPad music making as a way to reach and teach developmentally challenged students.

Video Description:

For years Adam Goldberg, a classical pianist who teaches music at P.S. 177 in Queens, New York, struggled to break through to his students who have serious learning disabilities, such as autism, until he started using instruments virtually anyone can play: an iPad. The P.S. 177 iPad Band is more than just a musical collective; the experience has helped students speak and communicate who never had before. Tracy Smith reports.

I'm usually the nay-sayer with this kind of thing, but clearly this teacher has kept the connection to the heart in his approach and hasn't eliminated other instruments from the program. Nice example of how to use technology in a way that helps build rather than break connections to music & other players.
