.

shawdaveI'm searching for #musedchat live on TweetGrid Search - http://tweetgrid.com/search?q=%23musedchat8:00 PM

.

pisanojmThanks everyone for being here tonight. So how have you all been collaborating with other teachers... In particular with tech.8:01 PM

.

shawdaveoh, not so much with tech. mostly joint concerts, Open Mic Jazz Nights. #musedchat8:02 PM

.

musictheatrenutOriginally thought I wouldn't be here tonight, but can be here for a bit. I team teach elementary music K-5 most days. #musedchat8:03 PM

.

pisanojm@shawdave Have you done many joint concerts? What grades?8:03 PM

.

shawdave@pisanojm HS level. Joint programs with neighboring county band. Ea. band plays separately, then combined for 2-3 pieces #musedchat8:04 PM

.

pisanojm@musictheatrenut Thanks for coming! It looks like a small crowd today.. but then again we are new! :) #musedchat8:04 PM

.

kgardIn my area we do a big show choir festival and every school has to watch every other school perform. Its Fun!8:04 PM

.

PurpleStar_I've collaborated with other schools for solos and ensembles festivals8:04 PM

.

pisanojmHave any of you collaborated outside of the "performance arena" with your kids? #musedchat8:05 PM

.

pisanojmOne of the coolest things I did with tech. recently in a "live" venue was to work with a local HS and Skype composers in... #musedchat8:06 PM

.

shawdavecolleague sent me mp3 of his band rehearsal. I listened and added comments w/ my recorder. Sounded like I was in his room. #musedchat8:07 PM

.

mrsnyhofI'm searching for #musedchat live on TweetGrid Search - http://tweetgrid.com/search?q=%23musedchat8:07 PM

.

pisanojm@shawdave So each band has time to work as a larger group? This is a good idea... How does it play out for the students? #musedchat8:07 PM

.

shawdave@pisanojm yes, great experience for our kids. we're both 40-50 kids at home. Together we're 80-100! #musedchat8:08 PM

.

pisanojm@shawdave This is an interesting idea... I wonder if anyone else has used this recording approach? #musedchat8:08 PM

.

wbauerOne of the hats I wear is as conductor of a community band. Anyone collaborating with groups like that? #musedchat8:08 PM

.

pisanojm@shawdave This is a great way to involve other local directors and get incredible feedback without too much traveling... #musedchat8:09 PM

.

pisanojm@wbauer Do you have much of the local school involved with the community band or are they mostly "graduates" of HS, etc.? #musedchat8:09 PM

.

mrsnyhofI wish- no community bands around here #musedchat8:09 PM

.

PurpleStar_Youth groups are great places to collaborate with students outside the schools8:10 PM

.

girlfromPBO@wbauer I love community band. been a great way to get in touch with military musicians in my area too! #musedchat8:10 PM

.

pisanojm@mrsnyhof Where do you live? #musedchat8:10 PM

.

kgardOr a good list of composers that skype with groups would be cool #musedchat8:11 PM

.

shawdave@pisanojm exactly. We're only 20 miles apart, but can't get to each others schools. Our groups both rehearse same time. #musedchat8:11 PM

.

kgardI would like to get with more teachers via skype. I think that could be really cool. Anyone interested :) #musedchat8:11 PM

.

pisanojm@girlfromPBO Do any of you have community choirs? Does this exist in your areas? #musedchat8:11 PM

.

wbauerWe rehearse in the local middle school bandroom, use their percussion equipment, and sometimes have hs/ms students with us.8:11 PM

.

girlfromPBO@pisanojm We do have some, but they are much more competitive than the community bands, which are a bit more come as you are #musedchat8:12 PM

.

mrsnyhof@pisanojm Rosebud Indian Reservation in South Dakota #musedchat8:12 PM

.

pisanojm@kgard I Skype at least once a month into teacher's classrooms, if I can. I discuss advocacy, instrumental music, music ed. etc. #musedchat8:12 PM

.

wbauerThe former ms band director was our asst. conductor, but not the present one. #musedchat8:12 PM

.

jguarrRE: collaboration. I play in a community band that pulls in local HS students to fill the ranks as well #musedchat8:12 PM

.

musictheatrenut@kgard - I am in the same boat #musedchat8:12 PM

.

musictheatrenutLooking to see if Skype may be away to get lessons to some students who need to rush off to sports/work but do music #musedchat #musedchat8:13 PM

.

mrsnyhofI like the skype idea- might be the only way for music teachers in my district to observe each other! #musedchat8:13 PM

.

pisanojm@kgard Skype with "experts" works best starting with your Networking Group-I tell teacher's to start with "old" college profs.8:13 PM

.

girlfromPBO@pisanojm except for the church choirs, of course! #musedchat8:13 PM

.

shawdavewould live to find someone to skype into my rehearsal. How does band sound through skype? #musedchat8:13 PM

.

pisanojmHere is a link to my project with Balmages, Boysen, Watson, and Weller. http://bit.ly/b3E6YK #musedchat8:14 PM

.

shawdavemy band has Music Performance Assessment tomorrow (formerly known as COncert Band Festival) #musedchat8:14 PM

.

girlfromPBOso who's willing to let me Skype into their rehearsal?!? :) #musedchat8:14 PM

.

rdammers@mrsnyhof I have my music ed students observe via Skype- it works reasonably well. #musedchat #musedchat8:14 PM

.

girlfromPBOlove the Skype idea. been looking for a way to do some obsv. before I go back to instrumental music idea, that might be a winner! #musedchat8:14 PM

.

shawdaveif I brought in a colleague to listen to live rehearsal, how much would My band sound like my band? #musedchat8:14 PM

.

kgard@pisanojm Great Suggestion8:15 PM

.

pisanojmThomas J. West has a very successful lesson program that uses Skype as the vehicle... #musedchat8:15 PM

.

pshimmons@shawdave Are you saying that your two bands perform together over skype? #musedchat8:15 PM

.

wbauerI've brought "experts" into my classes via iChat. #musedchat8:15 PM

.

jguarr@pisanojm How did you go about approaching the composers for your project? #musedchat8:16 PM

.

shawdave@pshimmons no, that a different conversation. I do joint live program every so often with friend down the road. #musedchat8:16 PM

.

jguarr@musictheatrenut plenty of "pros" already offer online music lessons. An interactive skype lesson would be very productive. #musedchat8:16 PM

.

pisanojm@jguarr Again, it goes back to your "core" group of Network(s). I actually know all of these folks...so did Travis. #musedchat8:17 PM

.

PurpleStar_skype sounds like a good idea for sharing performances8:17 PM

.

shawdave@pshimmons what I'd like to try is to have someone skype into my rehearsal to listen to my group, give siggestions. #musedchat8:17 PM

.

pisanojm@wbauer Skyping/iChatting "Experts" into your classroom is very easy and to do...and a tremendous educational exp. for your kids. #musedchat8:17 PM

.

pisanojmThere are a tremendous amount of known experts that are online and most are easily approachable... #musedchat8:18 PM

.

shawdavemy typer is busted....suggestions...i really an educated...... #musedchat8:18 PM

.

rdammers@shawdave I'd do a test run, trying different placements of your camera & mic, w/ the band at forte for sound quality #musedchat #musedchat8:19 PM

.

shawdave@rdammers yes, that makes sense. #musedchat8:20 PM

.

pisanojmI really liked the suggestion of taping a rehearsal/especially a dress/concert and having your colleagues to evaluate #musedchat8:20 PM

.

pshimmons@shawdave OK - Got it. I've had several small group sessions but never with the larger group. #musedchat8:21 PM

.

shawdaveI also collaborate by attending colleagues' Pre-Contest concerts (when asked to) and providing taped or written feedback #musedchat8:21 PM

.

pisanojmI frequently will bring in HS/MS teachers into the classroom to talk with the college kids about their experiences...win/win. #musedchat8:21 PM

.

jguarr@pisanojm We used to have MS/HS directors come into our conducting class...was a great experience #musedchat8:22 PM

.

shawdaveseveral of us "make the circuit", providing feedback for each other #musedchat8:22 PM

.

pisanojmHow many of you have your studens critically evaluate the other concerts they hear during a festival? #musedchat8:22 PM

.

wbauerJust recently we interviewed a potential graduate student in Taiwan via Skype. #musedchat8:22 PM

.

pisanojm@jguarr Bringing seasoned k-12 schools into our college methods class is "core" to making a better connection with the Ss. #musedchat8:23 PM

.

girlfromPBO@rizzrazz that's part of the instrumental SOLs in Virginia but I think a lot of people ignore it #musedchat8:23 PM

.

brandtschneider#musedchat I have several teachers on my class ning page. some pre-service teachers use to teach from very far away.8:23 PM

.

rdammers@wbauer We've used skype to have in-service teachers 'mock interview' our undergraduates #musedchat #musedchat8:23 PM

.

girlfromPBO@pisanojm I've done that, as well as have them critique their own rehearsal run throughs using the festival rubric. #musedchat8:23 PM

.

pisanojm@wbauer That's awesome... And, no doubt, not a perfect "scenario", but nonetheless effective... Did it work for you? #musedchat8:23 PM

.

wbauer@rdammers Good idea! #musedchat8:24 PM

.

wbauer@pisanojm The biggest challenge was the 12 hr time difference :-) The technology worked fine. #musedchat8:24 PM

.

pisanojm@rdammers Tremendous idea... #musedchat8:24 PM

.

PurpleStar_Having college students come in and talk to your HS band is really educational for them #musedchat8:24 PM

.

shawdaveworking toward wiki for my own HS band....moving band's website over this summer #musedchat8:25 PM

.

jguarr@pisanojm The real treat was when the teachers would bring some of their students to play with our lab ensemble #musedchat8:25 PM

.

pisanojmHow many of you have used Wikis are similiar for a group collaboration? #musedchat8:25 PM

.

wbauerAn article on videoconferencing & inst. music lessons was recently published by @rdammers - http://upd.sagepub.com/current.dtl #musedchat8:26 PM

.

PurpleStar_Skype works wonderfully #musedchat8:26 PM

.

pisanojm@shawdave Will you keep the old site or move all to the WIKI? Which WIKI are you using? #musedchat8:26 PM

.

PurpleStar_Making a website for your band is also a good way to network #musedchat8:26 PM

.

girlfromPBO@pisanojm the IWB wiki has been a HUGE collaboration tool. it can be hard to find music-specific IWB materials. #musedchat8:26 PM

.

pisanojm@jguarr I love when teachers/profs. play for their students at "festival" events... it is very important for the Ss to hear them. #musedchat8:26 PM

.

shawdave@pisanojm currently using wikispaces with another class. probably will move all to the wiki #musedchat8:27 PM

.

cybraryman1I have seen MS & HS music groups jam with residents of Senior Citizen & Nursing Homes. Great for community service #musedchat8:27 PM

.

rizzrazzHaving better musicians play for and with any level is tremendous motivation. #musedchat8:27 PM

.

pisanojm@girlfromPBO This is why it is so important that we continue to educate others about the viability of the tech. in their Crooms. #musedchat8:27 PM

.

pisanojmAre any of the folks here tonight more choir/vocal? #musedchat8:28 PM

.

wbauerWould love to have some of you join this wiki and contribute to it - http://sigmt.iste.wikispaces.net/ #musedchat8:28 PM

.

shawdavecurrent band site is through the school. must be at school to edit it #musedchat8:28 PM

.

jguarr@PurpleStar_ Have you built a website for your ensembles? What did you use? Where is it hosted? #musedchat8:29 PM

.

PurpleStar_Volunteer at your local church choir or band, it is a great place to meet your neiborhood musicians #musedchat8:29 PM

.

brandtschneider#musedchat I use google sites and ning8:30 PM

.

pisanojmAt E-CBDNA this week, Dennis Fisher talked of the tremendous opp. he created having his WE work directly with a composer. #musedchat8:30 PM

.

rizzrazzAnyone use Moodle? #musedchat8:31 PM

.

brandtschneider#musedchat http://sites.google.com/site/seymourhighmusic/ http://seymourmusic.ning.com8:31 PM

.

mrsnyhof@pisanojm I'm mostly vocal (K-5 general music with limited materials!) plus 5th grade band #musedchat8:31 PM

.

pisanojmIf you are just joining us... Tonight's Topic is: How have you collaborated with other teachers and schools?" #musedchat8:31 PM

.

rdammers@musictechie Have you also found that Skype has less problems w./ filters than iCHat? #musedchat8:31 PM

.

PurpleStar_@jguarr I used the webpage supplied by my school to post important news for the band parents, performance videos, ... #musedchat8:32 PM

.

pisanojm@rdammers The biggest barrier I have with iChat is that there is no PC client... Skype has all O/S... #musedchat8:32 PM

.

mrsnyhof@rizzrazz haven't used "the moodle" since college keyboard skills #musedchat8:32 PM

.

pisanojm@rizzrazz I've setup an account but don't use it... Carol Broos (Beatechie) has talked about ti frequently. #musedchat8:33 PM

.

wbauer@brandtschneider Nice site! Google sites is a great way to easily build a web site. #musedchat8:33 PM

.

PurpleStar_@jguarr ... and rehearsal and events dates for my students8:33 PM

.

shawdave@pisanojm since you're the resident guru, what opportunities should we be looking to include, other than ones mentioned so far? #musedchat8:34 PM

.

mrsnyhofJust discovered ututti which has a parent/student login for checking grades (plus you can use it to track inventory, etc) #musedchat8:34 PM

.

pisanojm@wbauer A stunning, easy builder is Wix.com... my students use this to build site projects in under 30 mins that look amazing. #musedchat8:34 PM

.

jguarr@PurpleStar_ follow-up question: do you twitter and facebook to update students/parents on news as well? #musedchat8:34 PM

.

brandtschneider@wbauer #musedchat debating to stick with ning or google site or both8:34 PM

.

wbauer@pisanojm Looks interesting, but I'm not a huge Flash fan. #musedchat8:35 PM

.

kgard@pisanojm do they get good student participation with ischoolband? #musedchat8:35 PM

.

rizzrazzI wonder about its viability (moodle's) in real world.#musedchat8:35 PM

.

pisanojm@shawdave I don't know if I'm the "resident guru", but I'm moderating today... :) #musedchat8:35 PM

.

pisanojmI do know of a lot of Band Directors that are now using iSchoolBand. #musedchat8:35 PM

.

pisanojm@shawdave You humble me... #musedchat8:36 PM

.

mrsnyhof@pisanojm wix.com looks really fun! thanks! #musedchat8:36 PM

.

pisanojm@kgard Did you get one of the free accounts when I was running that free promotion? #musedchat8:36 PM

.

shawdave@pisanojm I've followed you for a while....you're a guru, man! #musedchat8:36 PM

.

pisanojm@rizzrazz I've not "stuck with it"... maybe I need to revist... #musedchat8:36 PM

.

PurpleStar_@jguarr I don't facebook my students, it is against my school's policy #musedchat8:37 PM

.

musiccargirl14I have a lot of world instruments I bring in for students to touch and look at. Great to build lessons around #musedchat8:37 PM

.

pisanojm@wbauer I know you're a "HTML 5" guy! :) #musedchat8:37 PM

.

kgard@pisanojm no I just heard about it like 2 days ago8:37 PM

.

wbauer@brandtschneider I've used Ning (currently using for an online book discussion), but find it a bit clunky. #musedchat8:37 PM

.

kgard@shaugland what is the point of having the internet if it is that locked down? #musedchat8:38 PM

.

shawdaveI facebook w/ students who ask. I don;t put anything on FB that I wouldn't say to my grandmother. #musedchat8:38 PM

.

kgard@PurpleStar_ even from a group/fan page? #musedchat8:38 PM

.

wbauer@pisanojm Just don't like how Flash frequently crashes my browser. #musedchat8:38 PM

.

pisanojm@brandtschneider @wbauer I've moved to Google Wave for online collaboration like you're talking about... #musedchat8:38 PM

.

shauglandwe have so many restrictions on web usage at our school. We're mainly restricted to using our school website/blog8:38 PM

.

mrsnyhof@pisanojm Google wave would be great, but very few people in our district have it. #musedchat8:39 PM

.

wbauer@pisanojm I'd like to use Google Wave for something specific to gain more experience. So far I'm not sold on it... #musedchat8:39 PM

.

kgardRT @shawdave: I facebook w/ students who ask. I don;t put anything on FB that I wouldnt say to my grandmother. #musedchat8:39 PM

.

mrsnyhof@PurpleStar_ against school policy here too, been considering making a facebook fan page for music class #musedchat8:39 PM

.

kgard@shaugland is the school site open to the public? #musedchat8:40 PM

.

pisanojmLast Week's #musedchat had good information about online usage. Check out the archive: http://bit.ly/9dO634 #musedchat8:40 PM

.

jguarr@PurpleStar_ Not even a group page for your school music department? #musedchat8:40 PM

.

cybraryman1I have a collection of Music Teacher sites on my website: http://bit.ly/88AvG7 #musedchat8:40 PM

.

shaugland@kgard parents are concerned about safety/security issues (elementary school) but we use blogs/wikis, etc. on the school site8:40 PM

.

pisanojm@shawdave Googlewave has it's function...especially in collab... #musedchat8:41 PM

.

shaugland@kgard Yes, interestingly. http://www.lb65.org/education/staff/staff.php?sectionid=781& #musedchat8:41 PM

.

rizzrazzWhat does google wave provide? #musedchat8:41 PM

.

kgard@pisanojm do you use ischoolband? #musedchat8:41 PM

.

scitechyEDURT @cybraryman1: I have a collection of Music Teacher sites on my website: http://bit.ly/88AvG7 #musedchat8:41 PM

.

pisanojm...Including restriction usage/talks, etc. #musedchat8:41 PM

.

shawdavegooglewave, like flicker, is no fun alone.... #musedchat8:41 PM

.

shawdave@pisanojm I just don;t have anyone to collab with yet there. Haven't gotten to kick the tires yet #musedchat8:42 PM

.

kgard@shaugland nice site but wow it has pics of the kids and everything #musedchat8:42 PM

.

pisanojm@kgard I have accounts...but we do not use at the College because of our own internal software... #musedchat8:42 PM

.

mrsnyhofSuggestions for something like iSchoolband or ututti that would help organize materials/instr shared by several tchrs? #musedchat8:42 PM

.

shaugland@kgard Right, but there are kids whose parents don't allow their images on the website. I have to constantly check those. #musedchat8:43 PM

.

wbauerIf anyone wants a Google Wave invite, direct message me. I have a few. #musedchat8:43 PM

.

pisanojm15 mins to go. Tonight's topic is How have you collaborated with other teachers and schools? #musedchat8:43 PM

.

shauglanddoes anyone have success getting parents involved on blogs/wikis? #musedchat8:44 PM

.

pisanojmRT @wbauer: If anyone wants a Google Wave invite, direct message me. I have a few. #musedchat8:44 PM

.

kgard@shaugland yeah I deal with that too. Luckily only 2 parents are against it. And I try to be very smart about what I put on anywa #musedchat8:44 PM

.

pisanojmOne thing we have not mentioned yet is the incred. collab resouce that MENC offers in their forums-if you are a member-it's great #musedchat8:44 PM

.

kgardoff topic but does anyone have a good tech tool for cataloging music? #musedchat8:45 PM

.

musiccargirl14@rizzrazz Instant responses to questions from other colleagues you are friends with and document collaboration mostly #musedchat8:45 PM

.

kgardI also have google wave invites also if anyone wants one. #musedchat8:45 PM

.

rdammersI have a lab in our art building (my computers- their space)- anybody else share a lab? #musedchat #musedchat8:45 PM

.

pisanojm@rdammers No... How does that work out managment-wise? #musedchat8:46 PM

.

jguarrDitto with the google wave invites. Send a DM this way if you'd like one. #musedchat8:46 PM

.

pisanojmJust because technology may be inaccessible to a few is not a good reason NOT to use it...we have to provide alternatives as well #musedchat8:46 PM

.

pisanojm@brandtschneider I had a great wiki up called p-notes.com for about a year for program notes-lack of outside interest at the time #musedchat8:47 PM

.

rdammers@pisanojm Shared management is good- one image- many hands make light work #musedchat #musedchat8:47 PM

.

musiccargirl14I love Youtube as a tool for general music lessons, I create playlists of videos for each lesson, the kids love it #musedchat8:47 PM

.

rizzrazz@shaugland My parents are inner city. Barely do much but pick up their kids. Some responsible. No extra work tho. Chaperone maybe #musedchat8:47 PM

.

brandtschneiderhow about a shared google form where you would put in composer-song-comments? That would be great collaborate #musedchat8:47 PM

.

shawdavei teach in a rural area. Many of mu stdnts only have dial-up internet.... #musedchat8:47 PM

.

pisanojm@musiccargirl14 Easy way to have Ss collaborate is with SyncTube: http://www.synchtube.com/ #musedchat8:48 PM

.

shaugland@musiccargirl14 I had a lot on youtube, I used to put up lessons all the time, but was asked to take them down by my school #musedchat8:48 PM

.

brandtschneider#musedchat I'd just like basic info like "must have 4 french horns" or "can play with 12 kids"8:49 PM

.

erinmisegadisEnjoying the #MusEdChat while I demo Twitter to my classmates8:49 PM

.

pisanojm@rdammers True! #musedchat8:49 PM

.

mrsnyhof@shawdave ditto on the rural area... i tried to do a google form for student practice... it was a no-go. #musedchat8:49 PM

.

shaugland@rizzrazz my parents are too busy shuffling kids from one activity to another. They don't have time for communication. #musedchat8:49 PM

.

shawdavethere is TeacherTube.com #musedchat8:49 PM

.

shawdavehavne't used google forms...what is, please? #musedchat8:50 PM

.

shaugland@kgard blocked at my school too, but I begged and got a secret code. I use it all the time in class. #musedchat8:50 PM

.

pisanojm@erinmisegadis A perfect demonstration for you then! Glad you are all here! #musedchat8:50 PM

.

kgard@musiccargirl14 I wish. Youtube is blocked at my school. #musedchat8:50 PM

pisanojm@brandtschneider @wbauer uses Googe Forms for testing purposes.. #musedchat8:50 PM

.

pisanojm@kgard I know there is a link in the #musedchat archive... I'll look for it later... #musedchat8:51 PM

.

pisanojm@shaugland @kgard YouTube has changed the Face of my Jazz History Under-grad course for the better! #musedchat8:51 PM

.

brandtschneider#musedchat I test with it too. Using ning more now.8:51 PM

.

kgardpisanojm @brandtschneider @wbauer Can we get a link to an example google form test? #musedchat8:51 PM

.

kgard@pisanojm Thanks I am very interested in that. Luckily google docs is not blocked at my school. #musedchat8:52 PM

.

shawdavenever fails, every time I come to Twitter, I learn something new. I quench my thirst at the twitter well of knowledge. #musedchat8:52 PM

.

pisanojm@brandtschneider Can you auto-grade in Ning.. I've not seen that using Ning... #musedchat8:52 PM

.

kgard@shaugland I begged too and they assured me there is no secret code #musedchat8:52 PM

.

pisanojm@kgard There are ways to off-load YouTube... and I'm not going to get into CR here though... :) #musedchat8:53 PM

clb1015@pisanojm is there a list of videos (maybe top 10) on youtube i can check out then upload to teachertube? #musedchat8:54 PM

.

shaugland@clb1015 depends on what you're looking for - there's SO much! #musedchat8:55 PM

.

kgardSome one should put a bunch of tests in the google docs area that you can just get the template from. Music Related that is. :) #musedchat8:55 PM
