Music Learning Today

Learning is contextual, active, social, and reflective. Learners construct their own understanding by connecting prior knowledge to new information. Technology, when properly utilized, can facilitate these natural learning processes. This chapter discusses fundamental principles of human learning as they apply to the design of lessons, units, and curricula that include technology. Design models described include project based learning and backwards design, two approaches that often utilize technology and value the development of student 21st century skills such as creativity, critical thinking, communication, and collaboration. Technology is also a tool music educators can use to differentiate instruction and to provide learning support to special needs students. Finally, when engaged in instructional design that includes technology, music educators and their students need to be cognizant of copyright laws, utilizing public domain and Creative Commons media and materials whenever possible.
