Music technology professors Rob Harari and Carlos Alomar create experimental music with college students in Stevens’ music technology lab. Students on this heart are introduced to and learn the basics of coding. Work in small groups which might be much less threatening to college students who’re concerned about entire class humiliation. Assign collaborative small group work in order that the groups contribute to the class Google Doc or Padlet. The second piece of the puzzle consists of connecting all students to sufficient and sustainable internet access at dwelling. ConnectME , or Connect My Training, was developed to help deal with this civil rights situation of our day by systematically bringing internet into the properties of our college students.

First, we all flew into Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, for a author’s retreat for about seventy two hours. The goal was to put in writing the whole ebook (55,000+ phrases) during our stay. We were each challenged with writing our own chapter, or about 5,000 words. During the seventy two hours, we had a regimented schedule that included time to check in with writing companions for suggestions, invaluable writing tips and methods from Routledge Publishing Firm, in addition to time to write down alone. I realized lots about myself as a author during these few days. I do my finest writing away from everybody else. In reality, most of my chapter was written on day two between the hours of midnight and three ‘clock in the morning while alone in my hotel room working in my pj’s. I assume you never know when inspiration goes to hit you.
