Are They Ready to Teach with Technology? An Investigation of Technology Instruction in Music Teacher Education Programs
Haning, Marshall
Journal of Music Teacher Education, v25 n3 p78-90 Jun 2016
The purpose of this research was to investigate the type, quantity, and effects of technology instruction currently being provided to undergraduate music education majors. Undergraduate participants (n = 46) at 10 degree-granting institutions completed an online survey on the technology instruction received during their undergraduate degree programs and their plans for future technology implementation in their classrooms. Participants' responses indicated that 63% had taken a required technology course during their undergraduate degree program. Required technology courses were most commonly taught by the college/school/department of music, with music notation software and sound mixing and editing applications being the most common topics covered. Participants indicated that more technology instruction in instructional and student-centered applications was desired, with 43% of participants indicating that they did not feel prepared to effectively use technology in their future teaching positions.
