      nothing new in this but worth a repeat on a different stage SMH
    Rather than taking the time to get it right, we're using an outdated view of what kids need at school - dividing all the knowledge up into separate academic subjects and disciplines and then overloading those with content

AJET 27(1) Southcott and Crawford (2011) - The intersections of curriculum development:... - 0 views

  • Recently, in Australia both the National Review of School Music Education and The Australian Curriculum identify the importance of technology in school music education. However, the understanding of music technology, as demonstrated by state and territory curricular guidelines, is limited with technology mostly recognised as a tool. In comparison, contemporary Australian information and computer technology (ICT) curricula appear to have a very different understanding of how technology can enhance learning in the arts, specifically music. Through a comparison of the Australian States and Territories Years 7-10 curricular guidelines this article compares understandings in the two domains - ICT and the arts (particularly music). The different perspectives on the use of technology in music education can be seen as either using technology as a tool to support instruction in drill-like programs or as a platform for collaborative and creative learning that resonates with students in Australian music classrooms.
