Calling all teachers, students, and parents!
We’d love your input on how you use practice logs in your lessons. Feedback from recent surveys has shown interest in a practice log shared between students and teachers. We’d like to know more about your needs and wants for logging practice.
Teachers, do you ask your students to record their practice? What items do you ask them to make note of? For example, time practiced, goals, what they accomplished, how they felt, etc.? Do you ask all your students to complete practice records, or just certain ones? If it’s just certain students, what is the criteria? Certain age groups or musical goals, for example?
Students and parents of young students, do you record your/your child’s practice? What items do you record? Does it help you stay motivated?
For anyone who hasn’t run across them yet, Lessonface already has a Practice Log for Kids and a Practice Journal for Adults available on our Free Learning Tools page. Download them and share them with your students if you haven’t already.
What we’re considering currently is how to convert something like these practice logs into an app or shareable document that both teacher and student have access to.
Please let us know how you currently use practice journals in your lessons, and what you would find useful in a practice log app on Lessonface. We look forward to hearing from you!
