Edited by Gena R. Greher, Professor of Music Education at University of Massachusetts Lowell and Suzanne L. Burton, Professor of Music Education at the University of Delaware, Oxford University Press, 2021
In this book, teachers are provided with guidance and support for implementing this technology as a means to drive twenty- first- century musicianship and pedagogical transformation in music teaching and learning contexts. Students are drawn to mobile technologies such as iPads and smartphones because of the sheer endless possibilities of the digital worlds they hold. But how can their potential for stimulating the imagination be effectively used in the music classroom to support students’ development of musical thinking? Countering voices that see digital technologies as a threat to traditional forms of music making and music education, this book explores the many practical ways in which hand-held devices can be used to promote student learning and provides teachers with guidance on making them a vital presence in their own classrooms.
