This book draws together a range of innovative practices, underpinned by theoretical insight, that helps to clarify musical practices of relevance to the changing nature of schooling and the transformation of music education. In this way it addresses a pressing need to provide new ways of thinking about the application of music and technology in schools. More specifically it: Covers a diverse and wide range of technology, environments and contexts on topics that demonstrate and recognize new possibilities for innovative work in music in education. Deals with teaching strategies and approaches that stimulate different forms of musical experience, meaningful engagement, musical learning, creativity and teacher-learner interactions, responses, monitoring and assessment. Investigates how teachers and pupils voice and value their experiences in particular contexts and environments with specific software, hardware and forms of technology. Explores the professional development aspects involved in teachers and learners utilizing and interacting with technology and the secondary music curriculum. Introduces reflective practices and research methodologies of great interest and relevance to music teachers, teacher-trainers, community artists and for researchers and professional practitioners alike.
