Heading to Australia
This week, I am traveling to Wheelers Hill, Australia to present a keynote address, titled “How Technology is Transforming the Way We Teach Music in the Elementary Music Classroom” at the 2014 Soundhouse Music Alliance MTEC Conference. This is their fourth biennual conference specifically designed for music educators. It is two wonderfully-filled days of music technology workshops from October 3-4. I have the pleasure of presenting “Free Technology Resources for the Elementary Music Educator” on Friday morning, “Help! I am an Elementary Music Educator with One or more iPads” on Friday afternoon, and a keynote address on Saturday morning. I am very excited for this opportunity and I cannot wait to learn from all of the sessions.
I will be blogging daily, so please follow along here and my twitter feed: https://twitter.com/awillis2
I will also be posting my materials on my newly redesigned (well, just another outdated look, but still happy to see a new look) website at http://www.amymburns.com
