In my music classroom, I find using Teachback is highly beneficial for my students. I feel that having students take on the responsibility of providing instruction to others helps to keep them more engaged and focus with the material. It also helps them to demonstrate and develop understanding because they need to be able to break down the concept or topic into smaller, more digestible pieces. They will be instructing their peers, and they have to be able to communicate their ideas to others effectively and from multiple angles. Each of the learners that they are working with will gain understanding of the topic or concept in a unique way, and Teachback forces the students to take that into consideration. Yes, as mentioned before, Teachback is not a technology, but I feel that there are many different technology strategies and platforms that will allow students to engage in Teachback effectively.
