Web 2.0 Tools: RSSFeeds for Musicians

Chad Criswell’s feed, Music Ed Magic, collects information from various authoritative Music Education sites and blogs (such as MENC). The “footwork” that Chad has put into this collecting the information on this site gives me a great repository for the various facets of music education.

“Music, Education, and Technology” is authored by Debbie Cavalier, the Dean of Continuing Education at Berklee College of Music’s online extension school, Berkleemusic. Berklee is one of the forefront music schools in the world. Dean Cavalier’s articles on technology in music education are priceless as they are gathered from real-world situations.

“Music Tech” is authored by Dr. Joseph Pisano’s. He pulls information music education and technology from various places around the globe. Since I emphasis cultural diversity in my classroom his “Monday Morning Music Mix – Education News from All Over” posts are great sources of information.

“Elementary Music/Music Technology” is authored by Amy M. Burns. Her postings consists of using cutting edge technology to reinforce the elementary music classroom. Posts from PodCasting in the elementary classroom to how to use Skype to prepare for concerts are something very “FullSail-like.”

“Music Technology in Education” is authored by Dr. James Frankel. His posted information has a heavy emphasis on the technological aspect of music education. He shares his personal experiences from conferences, software developing and more.
