Thursday's activities will include sessions by the Doceo Center at NNU. They "strive to inspire personalized learning through innovative practices in education. We research and explore the convergence of technological innovation with effective teaching strategies and then use the information gathered to develop and deliver training that will equip and build the capacity of in-service and pre-service teachers." They will focus on music apps and their application in the music classroom.

Friday is Bring Your Administrator to Conference Day. We would like you to invite your school administrators to participate in this special day. Various sessions and activities will be held that will be of interest to both music teachers and their administrators. DOWNLOAD the flyer for more information.
