University of Mary Washington Digital Media Commons Initiative
March 11th, 2014 by Andrew Kraus

This is where I’ll be blogging about my experience with the University of Mary Washington Digital Media Commons Initiative. I am one of sixteen faculty and staff members awarded a grant to participate in developing a project to help showcase our new UMW “Convergence Center”.

Here is the text of my proposal…

“Develop a (perhaps interactive) video that shows how I, as a pianist and piano teacher,  use  (and by extension, other music teachers and students CAN use), technology in the teaching and practice of making music. Some examples: ability to peruse composer manuscripts with students from the (web based) Petrucci Library, increased availability of historic performances through YouTube and other web video streaming sites, teaching lessons to students off site with Skype, ability to record and upload performances to share and critique, use of tools like Canvas to facilitate group discussions.  Another area I’ve been exploring is making recordings with self-created subliminal affirmations for improvement, something relatively easy to do with what are today commonly available components at a fraction of past costs. Finished products could include a video, a blog and/or a website with a focus on the use of technology in teaching and performing music.”

Much, much, more to come!
