Abstract

For the symposium:
Over the past thirty years, technology has undergone tremendous transformation as ever improving computing power, growing ease of use, the Internet, and now mobile devices have combined to bring new opportunities for music teaching and learning. Students are no longer limited to traditional avenues of music instruction and learning, however valuable from an artistic perspective. They have ready-access to music software and virtual instruments on their cellular phones and other portable device; they can instantaneously download any music they want to hear or see performed; they can compose music individually or collaboratively with others; and they can communicate with anyone, anywhere, anytime. Furthermore, they can learn how to play electronic instruments and perform in digital ensembles and also have access to music educators who will teach them, online, from almost anywhere in the world. Challenges for working with learners in these ways require different approaches and skills from those in which many of us have been trained as music educators.

The Symposium’s objective is to engage session attendees in understanding the different ways that music technology can be integrated into their programmes and education. It has invited panelists who have years of experience in employing music technology in their teaching. Each member will discuss music technology from their perspective with outcomes, challenges and implications for music educators that may support or enhance their pedagogical capabilities.
Panelist topics include the following:
1) Developing electronic music ensembles;
2) Incorporating music technology in music teacher education;
3) Post-teacher education professional development programmes that
incorporate music technology and ongoing developments in teaching,
research, learning, and curriculum;
4) Employing mobile music devices for music teaching and learning, and;
5) Teaching applied music online.

Each panellist will have ten minutes to address their area of interest, with the opportunity for symposium attendees to raise questions after each presentation.
