Using technology in music teaching – my workflows

By Stephen Downes - Stephen's Web. Using technology in music teaching – my workflows
Simon Dring, drummer / teacher, 2014/08/13

As I read posts and articles on education technology and digital pedagogy I find myself often wishing that writers would be more reflective. In an article about, for example, the workflow involved in teaching music online, the important bits aren't the broad overviews that anyone could figure out - creating handouts on Sibelius, storing notes on box.com, typing quick notes using of Drafts.

Ed tech promoters need to understand how most of us learn

By Stephen Downes - Stephen's Web. Ed tech promoters need to understand how most of us learn
Annie Murphy Paul, The Hechinger Report, Jul 28, 2014

Linking #k12 to #mLearning, networked learning, cloud computing

Inge Ignatia de WaardBy Inge Ignatia de Waard. As the New Media Consortium report is out looking at the upcoming trends for k12 and online learning, I was pleasantly surprised by the emerging combinations which clearly embrace new educational technologies and student-centered focus.
The almost 50 pages report is a source of interest for any teacher, school, or elearning expert. It provides a nice overview of new options and trends for young students, as well as interesting assumptions. One of the assumptions is: mobile acceptance in schools, teacher proficiency in a variety of digital skills, and even the contemporary classroom (filled with ICT and edtech options). This is the ideal setting and for many schools not (yet) achievable. Nevertheless the points raised in the report are interesting.
For those with little time a quick read through the 9 page preview report will already raise interest, but for those having more time, I do recommend reading the full report as it narrates not only what is to come, but also why the authors of the report think so, and what importance it can have.
