Opportunity for music educators to get some online exposure

To music educators out there, especially my #uwsmteach rabble…

Serendipitously received this email this morning from an educator in the US. Here is a genuine opportunity to become part of a worldwide music education community with the blog you’re already writing…

I am hosting the Music Education Blog Carnival next month, if you are a music teacher or know a music teacher that blogs, please have them participate in this wonderful activity. It could be a favorite blog post or a new one, they simply sign up. http://blogcarnival.com/bc/cprof_4443.html

I know it says that entries must be submitted by March 31, but I won’t be posting until Monday, April 5, due to spring break. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me.
Always,

This is exactly the kind of thing I am looking for my #uwsmteach students to be involved in to extend your knowledge and encourage you to question everything you’re learning and develop your own strong, well informed views on music education from diverse influences.

Start by reading some of the existing posts from one of the past “carnivals”, and then think about what you could submit. It may be your own thoughts on music education, or a summary of the approach we’re learning on the course. It may be a unit of work you’ve developed, or a way you’ve thought of using music technology in the classroom to teach composition/performance/listening etc.

You may want to talk about the importance of teaching music theory to year 5 students, or why you think rock n roll is important to melodic writing, or why we should start learning performance by singing.

Perhaps you could write about the importance of sharing online!

Please, have your say.
