In this build session we will construct an updated list of technology tools for use in the music classroom. We will use Stephen Gosden’s list from our 2013 meeting as a point of departure. The aim of this session will be to produce a shared, updated online document that can be used as a community resource. Continue reading 2015 Session Proposal (IP and OL): Tech Tools

Following are some online resources to spur questions and discussion topics: Educause, “7 things you should know about screencasting.” Talbert, Robert. 2011. “How … Continue reading 2015 Session Proposal: What makes a good instructional video?
