Resisting Elephants Lurking in the Music Education Classroom - Thomas A. Regelski, 2014 - 2 views

  • An elephant in the room” refers to an obvious problem that remains unmentioned and is suffered silently. Music education has many such ‘elephants’ in its classrooms, and music teacher educators often seem resigned to working around them or worry about confronting them. Others are in collusion with these ‘elephants.’
  • This problem stems from the elephantine belief that a music educator must first and foremost be a good musician and that such training is sufficient to being a good teacher.

      Not really finding this video as helpful.  Twitter has been a round for a while and I am very acquainted with its uses.  Note - video was created in 2009...four years ago!

      There is NO WAY it is acceptable to friend our students on facebook.  I agree that we should not make social media the elephant in the room.  I just do not see how it is appropriate to be friends with a student on facebook.

      I would challenge kids to use their OWN digital devices (iPhones, etc) and see if they can make connections with what they see to what they are learning in school!
