Im Busy - youre busy. In my talking to music teachers - from primary to tertiary - some are very busy. My tips today are what works for me, and Ive taken from what others have shown me. MY HOPE FOR TODAY _ MY LEARNING OUTCOME - that you will take at least 2 tips away that you will actually use tomorrow. That you will take 15mins to plan how you are going to impliment it. Some are not ground breaking, some are.

I play in 3 bands, perform locally and nationally.

1.

Act On It - NOWPass it on - NOWFile it - NOWThrow it away - NOW

Relatively easy to follow three of those - Act On IT - setting time aside to read email and have time built in to be able to respond to them.

digital note takingWebclipper Chrome Extension

Two main functions I use - clipping websites and articles. Others - audio note taking, pen on a digital paper. Sharing notes with others. Can be offline too. Premium level for large file uploads per month.Chrome - Friends dont let friends use internet explorer - less issues.

3.

Itinerant/Peripatetic Instrumental lesson organisation

Previously, physically fill out a form, then take about 3 days to enter into a spreadsheet, with spelling errors, other errors - like trying to hire a guitar. Start of the year is busy, wasnt until about week 5 or 6 that lessons could start.

Google Forms (Microsoft Forms)Results collated/sortedStudents fill out detailsTimetables for lessons made(Waiting list)

5.

Digital Assessment of Compositions and Work

How do you receive student compositions? How do you store them? Issues with printing, (and cost), emailing gets lost - clogged up email inbox. USB issues, loose sharing rights the next year - accounts deleted. MY STUDENTS COMPOSITIONS ARE COMPUTER BASED, KEEP IT DIGITAL - searchable.

Free for Google School domains. Google Classroom - 20mins with a 5min video. Playing around. 5mins delivering to the PFA staff.

Microsoft Teacher Dashboard - Preloaded classes for $500NZ. Potential for quite advanced things. Clunky, less intuitive, pushing and pulling not quite time-saving. These are just two examples. Other will emerge

6.

Central PointOne Stop ShopWebsite/Blog/Weebly

As we are transitioning from google docs, moodle over to Microsoft 365. Needed a central place. The changeover wasnt really all sorted at the end of last year - I do my planning and prep in nov and dec - once the year starts, I am too busy. Decision as a Performing arts faculty - once they come into our block - a consistent message, go to the weebly.

WaiColPFA.weebly.comWaimeaCollegePerformingArts

Weebly is free website - template. Quite easy. Spent time looking at old wordpress - a bit more powerful but not needed. Wanted it outside of google domain - due to managment decision to move away from google.

Not Google Searchable - copyrightURL LINKS DropboxGoogle DriveMicrosoft 365YoutubeWebsites - eg State Curriculum sites.Digital Calendar

Digital Internal Moderation/Storage

11:25 am NO LATER - Dropped hard drive, looking for the right cable, munt the power lead. Have to have the harddrive with you. Ive dropped a 1TB HD. If its in the cloud, it can be shared - privately or others add to it - Eg RAPs description

One PlaceRequires some setup and organisationWill save you timeWill save you stressGreat for the future

Eg showing nick the new yr 11 teacher - changes to state-central moderation

8.

Create your own PLN(Personal Learning Network)

Cant rely on generic PD from your school. Often sole charge, or only teacher in that specific area
