A warm welcome to you,
Over the next coming years, I hope to share with you some noteworthy developments within the arts and technology, and how they can shape and sculpt social practices deployed in education (although not exclusively).
I have recently completed my masters’ dissertation in classical music education, which examined how the orchestra helped deliver a pedagogical apparatus to teachers in disciplining and instructing students. I tried to engage and observe through multi-sensory methods, trying to understand how the sonic outputs of classical music governed a variety of social situations that were apparent in classrooms and the concert hall.
I still have a profound interest in this area, and will continue to read/develop observations made within this area of music education. However, I will also try to throw in technological innovations in the classroom (such as the Raspberry Pi project), and examine how the arts and technology can work together in creating twenty-first century citizens of the western world.
I am sure that this website will expand into other areas, as I want to build a broad, multidisciplinary library of information and analysis on this website.
Thanks again for stopping by, and I look forward to hearing from you!
