Perpich Center of the Arts Technology Workshop Notes

Today I had the pleasure to present three sessions on the use of technology in music education at the Perpich Center of the Arts, which hosted a technology workshop.  A huge thank you to Nyssa Brown (Music Education Coordinator) who organized the event, and a hearty thank you to the participants and fellow presenters at the workshop.

I’ve added my presentation notes to the “Past Presentations” links, but I’ll also add them below.

I only had the opportunity to attend one session, and I had the pleasure to watch Dr. Michael Buck of Augsburg College talk about assessment, and in particular he brought the work of Dr. Wendy Barden to his presentation, who has a series of short but powerful books about assessment in music education through Kjos Publishing.  She recently released a book on choral assessment, which I will be buying as soon as possible (it isn’t even available on Amazon at this point).

Nyssa Brown also provided a short presentation on technology integration; I will reference that work in a later post (and probably include it in a revision on my eBook, which is still in limbo in the iBookstore).

Here are the resources from the conference for the sessions I hosted.  As a side note, if you ever find a good app, please e-mail me and let me know.  I didn’t get into many of the individual instrument apps that are available for elementary education, as if you need a specific instrument, you can search the iTunes Store effectively for single instrument apps (i.e. Conga).
