Teaching Trumps Technology:  The Artistry of Using Gadgets and Apps

This is a detailed analysis of the results of the technology survey conducted in August and September 2015 by the Ann Arbor Area Piano Teachers Guild.  Two groups of responses are tallied and compared, one for Ann Arbor teachers and the other from “online” teachers (teachers from around the world who responded to the survey in online forums).  By identifying strengths, challenges and long term goals, teachers interested in using technology can assess what others are doing in similar circumstances and make informed choices for their own technology use.
