Blog Revisited: Ten Tech Tools to Assist an Elementary Music Teacher – Webinar!
As a countdown to the 2019 school year, I created a list of “Ten Tech Tools to Assist an Elementary Music Teacher for a Concert”. Each day, a blog post highlighted the tech tool. I have placed the webinar here (see below) and on my website.
This webinar is a thorough one. Coming in at two hours, it is a lengthy webinar. However, it covers the ten tech tools more than the blog posts cover them.
