My name is Jamie Kasper, and I am the Arts Educator 2.0 project co-director with Mara. I am currently the Fine Arts and Humanities Advisor at the Pennsylvania Department of Education. I spent nine years teaching music in Maryland, Virginia, and Pennsylvania. I play flute and piccolo in various groups in my “spare time”. I really enjoy finding new technology and figuring out how it can make my life easier.
I’m looking forward to exploring the iPad and finding out if/how it can help arts educators plan, teach and assess students. My iPod touch has become an integral part of my personal and professional life, so it will be interesting to see how this new tool fits.
