But I Can Practise Piano on my iPad

Justina Fernandes, Jon Mason

    Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapterpeer-review


    This chapter raises questions concerning the role of digital technology in facilitating music education in primary schools, particularly in Australia. For example, how might best practices in using technology support music education, given the pace of technological change? Are current policies and practices surrounding teacher training serving the goals of music education? Should technology innovation or educational philosophy determine the direction of music education, or does posing such a question mask the mutually informing nature of these key influences? Building upon an initial student inquiry during 2014, this chapter considers changes in education triggered by innovation in digital technology, as well as the contemporary situation in Australian primary school music education, and it provides advocacy for technology-infused music teaching and learning in primary schools into the future.
