Strand 6: Digitisation (Teacher Education in the Digital Age)
- Encourage the use of digital technologies in music education.
- Provide tools and examples of interesting practices that help the acquisition of knowledge, skills and experience on digital technologies, and develop an approach to promote critical thinking, in order to meet the needs of an ever-advancing society.
The “Long And Winding Road” of digitisation
Through its work, WG6 meant to present a framework for the reflective practitioner who wishes to set steps on the “Long And Winding Road” of digitisation. The WG’s activities and outcomes will inspire teachers, researchers and policy makers, support them in a systematic reflection on digitisation, and help them to integrate technology in view of empowering students. This way, students, being the musicians and music educators of the future, will be prepared and equipped with the necessary skills, knowledge and experience to contribute to strengthening music in society.
The WG developed an online database featuring data collected through a questionnaire on the use of digital learning tools in music education institutions.
Webinar on digitisation in music education
A webinar on digitisation in music education targeting music teachers working in music schools was organised on 1-2 October, with 80 participants from all over Europe.
The WG published numerous articles reporting and reflecting on its work, its findings, the data collected and future perspectives:
- Digitisation in music education
- Analysis of collected digital practices in HME institutions
- Reflections of the AEC-SMS Digitisation Working Group on the current COVID-19 situation
