Digital Time Management for the Music Teacher - Robby Burns
Teachers spend too much time staring at computer screens checking email, scrambling to complete logistic tasks, and organizing documents. Technology is supposed to help us get work done, but often it is just one other thing in our way. Learn to harness the power of task management, calendar, and other productivity apps so that you can spend less time doing busywork and more time teaching music!
Live Sound & Recording: It’s more than plugs and faders - Mark Lochstampfor
Music educators are typically asked to run the live sound equipment and record the school events, but often lack the training to do this. After all, they are music educators, not audio engineers. This session demonstrates how to create a quality live-sound and recording venue.
Tricks to Make Instructional Videos Engaging - Stephen Cox
We are all aware of how difficult it is to keep students' attention. If you don't take the extra time to make sure your class videos are engaging, you can defeat the entire purpose of making them. In this enjoyable clinic, Cox will show you some tricks to make your classroom videos more engaging and fun for your students. This will include example videos, filming technique demonstration, and some editing demonstration.
