Supporting Music Teachers in the use of Technology

National Music Management Group (NMMG) is funded by DfES and Becta to advise and assist in the embedding of ICT in the music curriculum. NMMG has representatives from all the main music subject and industry associations and government education bodies.

Teachers all over the country are telling us that what they need is face to face, peer to peer support to help them with their ICT issues. With this in mind, we are preparing an initial series of regional conferences, the first of which is held at Callington Community College on Friday 8th July, where teachers can see other local teachers’ presentations on a wide range of music and ICT applications. The conferences will explore ways in which teachers can access ongoing support in their region for their particular ICT requirements.

Content of the conferences includes:

  • working with interactive whiteboards
  • developing a school music website
  • whole class music teaching using ICT
  • assessment and transition
  • wider opportunities
  • music and digital video
  • live performance using technology
  • music technology and special needs
  • partnerships and external providers
  • local support networks

(content will vary from region to region)
