Music Ed Motivation Day

  My cold appeared at the right time, right after #musedmot. Right now I’m sitting on the couch with a mouth full of vitamin C . Thank you to everyone who watched, participated, and moderated. I could not have done this without all of you. It’s such a great feeling to have an idea come to reality that was deemed so new and exciting. The whole point of today was to keep us all being the best of the best, why? because we take time to make sure we’re motivated to giving our students our best. I learned a lot from the day picking up new tech ideas, songs to teach, and making new friends to talk with. I appreciate everyone who took time to sit down at the computer yesterday to chat. I started my stint at the computer at about 10:30am and didn’t leave my creepy basement studio until 10pm clad in a newly tea stained shirt (my tea attacked me during cocktail hour) and my awesome kilt (When Richard McCready sports the bowtie I wear the kilt!). Everything tech wise went almost completely according to plan. A couple snafoos with G+ went on but that was of course anticipated because of how new it was to so many people. Twitter chats of course died down when G+ started too. It was learning experience, I took notes though, not to worry! 

       So as I clear out the schedule from yesterday on the page take time to think, did I get motivated after talking with my peers? Am I on that conference high? Let me know if it was a positive experience. Even though I might be clearing out the page I’m still leaving it up. We’re going to do this again and next time it’s going to be even better. So keep an eye out on http://www.cdwinal.com/musicedmotivationday.htm , and check out the archives from the event here: http://wp.me/pHofe-61 . Email, tweet, facebook, plurk, G+, comment here, let me know how we can make it better! 

       Again, thank you to everyone who had a hand in this and thank you to Quaver Music (quavermusic.com/preview) who let me give away a free Quaver Music DVD in our General Music Hangout! Even though I feel like I’ve been run over by a dump truck I’m still gleaming with pride about this event!
