Dr. Jack Scandrett, associate professor of Music at IUP, will present the results of his collaboration with students at Richland High School in Johnstown at the Teachers Teaching with Technology Conference at IUP on Saturday, March 7. The Hoodlebug Brass Quintet, comprised of the Brass faculty in the IUP Department of Music, coached a student brass ensemble at Richland HS using real-time videoconferencing. The project was sponsored by an ACPAC Innovation grant and in conjunction with the Centers for the Advancement of Partnerships in Education (CAPE). This program, which demonstrates the possibilities of using videoconferencing to work with students at a remote location, was also presented at the CAPE “Emerging Technologies” conference and at the Pennsylvanian Music Educator’s conference last April.
