A Survey of ICT Usage across English Secondary Schools
Savage, Jonathan
Music Education Research, v12 n1 p89-104 Mar 2010
The use of information and communication technologies (ICT) is a statutory component of the Key Stages 2 and 3 National Curricula in the UK. This research presents findings from a national survey of the availability and usage of ICT in music classrooms within English secondary schools. It also examined a range of issues related to the training and continuing professional development opportunities that teachers utilised to develop their skills in this area. Key findings from the research show that music education is dominated by conservative uses of ICT that reinforce traditional subject content. Rigorous strategies for the sharing of knowledge in this area are needed if wider impact is to be made on the delivery of music curriculum that exploits the broader potential of ICT to widen access and provide students with an inclusive and personalised curriculum. (Contains 7 tables and 1 figure.)
