Leading Notes Online Music Education Magazine: New Issue
I’m excited to report that Leading Notes, an online music education magazine, has just published its latest issue. The July 2012 edition is full of great articles related to the theme, “Educating the New Educator”and is related to their previous issue which “took a look at Educating the New Musician”. The current issue is divided into six sub-sections:
- The Power of Reflection and Assessment
- Growth Through Data Fact-Finding
- Learning Across Subjects
- The Cooperating Teacher and Student Teacher
- Conferences: Development on the Road
- Learning Online
Justine Dolorfino, one of the editors for the magazine, asked me to write a brief history of my journey regarding online music education and social media for this issue. You may find this article directly at this URL: “The Facebook Music PLN: Connecting Music Educators Through Social Media“. I’ve only just begun to read all of the great articles in this edition and, as always, they are proving to be very insightful and interesting. By all means, please take the time to browse this amazing, free, resource for “us”.
