A big thankyou to University of Sydney and their online MOOC course The Place of Music in 21st Century Education. Without their push to create a website, this site would not yet have been created.
I’m quite inspired by the videos so far of a private school in Sydney, and the technologically advance music program they have there. Whilst as a classically trained musician I’m not particularly inspired by the music on this clip, I do like the ways that the students are so well resourced, and are encouraged to be self-directed and creative in their musical activities.
Music-wise something I do love from week 1 of the 5 week course is the quirky background music for the videos on how to set up your own website: A Toast by Ethan Hein.
I’m very much looking forward to more learning in this fascinating and well presented course.
