TI:ME has developed these courses around the taxonomy of educational strategies that the organization first identified in 1998 and updated in 2005: notation, production, electronic instruments, instructional software, and multimedia. TI:ME, has from the beginning, however, always included a focus on the educational outcomes of these technologies. For example, we learn notation software so that we and our students may compose and arrange. We learn electronic instruments so that we and our students may perform and make music. TI:ME's Technology Strategies for Music Educators has a significant portion of the book devoted to the connections between the TI:ME strategies and the NAfME standards (singing alone and with others, performing alone and with others, etc.).
