One of my MANY New Years Resolutions is to be a better blogger. 

So, I thought I'd start by telling you about a project I've been working on for a couple of months. 

A few years ago, I started podcasting with two other music teachers, Carol Broos and Brenda Muench.  I had met both of these ladies online, first on Plurk, and then I followed them on Twitter.  We talked virtually for about six months before we met in person at the IMEA Conference in 2009.  We began a podcast show called "Musically and Technically Speaking" (MATS), which we did for about 2 years before life and internet connections got in the way.

Carol approached both of us regarding a new show for the website EdReach.  This new podcast is called the aRTs Roundtable, and we discuss issues in arts education, including technology, PLNs, and creativity in the classroom.  It has been an awesome experience so far, and I've enjoyed recording each week.

You can actually subscribe to our podcast through iTunes (iTunes - Podcasts - EdReach » aRTs Roundtable by EdReach- The Education Media Network).  You can also visit our page on EdReach here: ARTs Roundtable | EdReach

It has been a wonderful experience to discuss issues in arts education with such talented educators.  I've already learned a lot from them and hope to learn even more!
