I’m looking forward to presenting two sessions on Music Technology at #TBSedcon21 for The British School, Rio de Janeiro. The sessions will be as follows

Practical ideas and strategies for integrating music technology in secondary education
This session will consider the role of music technology in music education today and how it can be used to inspire and engage learners in secondary school and beyond. It will consider how music technology can both support and augment learning in more ‘traditional’ musical settings and the importance of it as a subject and discipline in its own right. There will be opportunities to discuss and share good practice as to how centres embed music technology in a variety of different contexts, the various merits associated with this, and the varied meanings of the term ‘music technology’ itself.

Music education and e-learning; supporting students’ musical learning inside and outside of the classroom using technology.
The pandemic has changed our lives immeasurably over the past year. In particular, it has had a huge effect on the way we work; this session will begin by reflecting on the things are perhaps worth keeping that can support face-to-face learning and instruction in music in the future. It will incorporate an overview of ideas, strategies and resources to support students’ musical education both remotely and in supplementing face-to-face teaching and learning. What are the opportunities to do things in different ways? There will be opportunities to discuss this in terms of delegates’ varying experiences of this and a number of strategies and resources will be modelled and showcased by James.
