Over the Digital Horizon 3 – Home & Away: Blur the boundaries between classroom and home composition & production
March 8 @ 4:30 pm - 6:00 pm
The first iteration of Wiltshire Music Connect’s Over the Digital Horizon webinar series focuses on four key areas and balances an exposition of emerging ideas and technologies with the best current, practical applications.
The programme explores how new technology can inspire and invigorate your work in music education, and we hope it will be of interest to anyone interested in exploring the interplay between digital, music and the arts.
The format for these sessions is a webinar presentation of 60-80 mins with the option to stay on for post-presentation discussion with speakers and colleagues for a further 20 mins.
Session #3 Home & Away: Blur the boundaries between classroom and home composition & production
There are now myriad platforms for composition, production and podcasting that pupils can use at home.
We can support our pupils’ use of these platforms by offering sound theoretical foundations, an ever-broadening musical world, and opportunities for performance and publication.
In this session we will survey a variety of existing and ‘on the horizon’ software platforms and online teaching resources, and consider affordable home-studio equipment set-ups. We will explore how to create and share audio stems and develop classroom tasks that can be augmented at home. We will hear from guest speakers on projects that are using creative technologies to strengthen communities around the world.
You will come away with:
- Ideas for equipment and production platforms will best meet the needs of your pupils.
- Signposting to affordable resources and schemes of work that can be used in class or at home.
- A global perspective of the potential of hybrid classroom/home creative learning for individual and social empowerment.
