I have been working on some research for educational technology taylored for music educators. I have looked at charmed and looked at some of the 'white board' technologies. Let me know what you use and what you would do to make it better?

I was looking through the forums here at banddirector.com and it does not seem like many people post. There are a lot of 'views' but few responses. Why is that?

Thanks

I use many parts of technology in my teaching. Mosty that is software. I use Sibelius for doing up arrangements. I use audacity and Pro tools as well as an Edirol r09 for recording rehearsals and performances. I use Band in a box for recording chord progressions for students to practise improvised solos. In my classroom I extensivly use data projector and surround sound system for showing lessons on powerpoint or just for worksheets. Of course I also show videos and u tube clips of bands / musicians etc.

I hope this is ok info for you. If you would like more information let me know how to contact you and we can exchange emails.
