This week, I am blogging from Boone, NC. I am presenting at the Appalachian State University Silver Burdett/Pearson Summer Music Institute. My four-day sessions are based around interactive music making with iPads, Chromebooks, and SMART Boards. I will be blogging everyday with highlights from all sessions. In addition, you can see some of the links from my session on my website, amymburns.com.
If you want to learn more about Silver Burdett’s newest online series that partners with Alfred and Sanna Longden, please check it out here.
Finally, if you want to take a week-long course about the topic of iPads, SMART Boards, and Chromebooks in the elementary music classroom, please come to Central Connecticut State University during the week of July 10-14. You can register here.
