Any submissions in the interim will be considered for the September Carnival.
I am working on a number of new initiatives over the summer with regard to a educational learning networks and music. It is my hope to have a couple of major announcements over the summer months in this regard. Please stay tuned to MusTech.Net for more information (follow our rss feed: https://mustech.net/feed).
I also just re-vamped my personal “holding” site on the Internet. Please take a look at http://jpisano.com and let me know what you think of my new WordPress Resume themed site. I welcome your feedback.
Finally, I intend to continue moderating a number of the #musedchats chats over the summer. I would like to encourage all of you to invite one new member to the #musedchat today and for each of the Monday Night chats. Tonight’s topic (5/10/2010) is: “What can we do to advocate Music Education specifically to school administrators?”
