Creating video tutorials has been hard when things are so in flux. We've been reluctant to invest time - and especially volunteer time - in producing videos while our hybrid content and delivery strategy is still changing and developing. The past two years have been a time of experimentation and iteration. We're still prototyping!

"Many North American music education programs exclude in vast numbers students who do not embody Euroamerican ideals. One way to begin making music education programs more socially just is to make them more inclusive. For that to happen, we need to develop programs that actively take the standpoint of the least advantaged, and work toward a common good that seeks to undermine hierarchies of advantage and disadvantage. And that, inturn, requires the ability to discuss race directly and meaningfully. Such discussions afford valuable opportunities to confront and evaluate the practical consequences of our actions as music educators. It is only through such conversations, Connell argues, that we come to understand “the real relationships and processes that generate advantage and disadvantage”(p. 125). Unfortunately, these are also conversations many white educators find uncomfortable and prefer to avoid."
- As music educators we do our best to include cultures and introduce new ideas because of what is relevant at the time. Yet we don't go to the next level and dive into the importance of "why" and how we as citizens along with our students can get involved and take positive actions. This may be due to the lack of autonomy in the classroom and/or time to teach in general.

a majority believe they understand technology better than their teachers. For such a student, imagine how it must sound to hear her teacher talking up “computers” and “digital tools.”
It is frustrating when teachers talk about digital tools and computers when they are not able to use/teach them effectively. However, when a teacher does know what they are talking about it is powerful. Students assume they are know everything about digital tools and when a teacher effectively introduces something new, it lends validity to not only the teacher but also the topic of digital humanities. The point highlights the importance of training/educating teachers about the digital world, specifically tools involved with digital humanities.

In their original description Mejía and García (2013) indicated that C. jimenezii is morphologically similar to C. gracilis, but the former has leaves with whitish indumentum on both surfaces and a blade that is not fully circular in outline, and with a truncate hastula that is only a little visible on the underside; leaf sheaths thin and soft-textured; and fruits yellowish white at maturity.
What can you infer about the physiology based off of the morphology of the plant?
degree of genetic differentiation between these populations, and (3)
What may be some causes for genetic differentiation within these two populations?
