TMEA Redux

It appears I now not clear in my posting about the TMEA conference. I feel it is neither good nor bad, just different. It was a very different conference than library conferences. Something we should keep in mind is that not everybody uses nor needs technology. These folks can do their thing very successfully with very little recourse to information technology, and libraries for the matter. Sure they do have to do some music history instruction that requires books but the making of music and dance does not require much in the way of tech. It is a joke among some of the music teachers that they threaten the kids with getting out the books to get them to behave. Music theory in later grades requires textbooks, but most of the better elementary music teachers use books and technology very little.
