A Postdigital Future for Music Education: Definitions, Implications, and Questions
Clements, Ann
Action, Criticism, and Theory for Music Education, v17 n1 p9-41 Apr 2018
The term postdigital has been used by various disciplines to draw attention to the changing relationship between digital technology and human social and artistic practices. This article explores multiple definitions of the term postdigital from the disciplines of music, visual art and design, architecture, business, marketing, media and film studies, and education. It then argues that the use of this term reflects a paradigm shift in these fields. This shift has implications for the future practice of K-12 music education including the impact of digital cleanliness and ease of production, the growing hybridity of digital and traditional music making, and the influence of digital technology on human artistic practice.
