A Case Study of Piano Pedagogy Training That Prepares Musicians to Teach Synchronous Piano Lessons Online

"Common themes that emerged included: initial reticence about using the technology for teaching piano; fear of interacting with the technology and of technology failure; concern about online
presence and rapport with the students; initial reliance on visual cues; struggle with balance between talking and musical demonstration; development of contingencies and strategies for
dealing with technology snags; development of rapport with the students once teaching began; and, ability to help students listen musically and refine technique and musical interpretation as a result of online instruction."

Politics, practices, and possibilities of open educational resources

Politics, practices, and possibilities of open educational resources | Digital Media in Practice | Scoop.it
Let me leave you with just a few interesting (I think) questions that the proliferation and promise of OER raise:

• Is teaching necessary for learning, or is it simply helpful? And if teaching expertise is necessary for learning, can it be wholly front-end loaded, that is, into the design of learning materials, which are then available for wholly autodidactic learners to use as they will?

• Does the proliferation of OER materials online inspire or require (or both?, or neither?) a shift in societal conceptualizations of learners from didactic to autodidactic beings?

• And if newly proliferating OER are related in some way to a change in societal understandings of what it means to be a learner, how might this shift connect to longer-evolving understandings of lifelong learning (e.g., Boud, 2000)?

• If OER do offer a radical broadening of access to postsecondary education, what roles might we—those of us already in the academy and engaged in open and/or distance education—play in supporting that broadening of access? Do we see ourselves as materials producers? As voluntary academic tutors? As assessors and examiners of work produced by self-taught students? What role—if any—might we play in supporting informal students (citizens?) to become effective autodidacts?

Exploring an experiential learning project through Kolb's Learning Theory using a qualitative research method | Digital Media in Practice | Scoop.it

"Grading a diversity of graduate attributes, such as leadership skills, global citizenship and cultural understanding, will be more challenging compared to grading examinations and traditional assignments. As stated by Quinn and Shurville (2009): ‘the hardest part of implementing experiential learning in both philosophical and practical terms is assessing the graduate attributes that are embodied within it’."

Restoration Tips & Notes » 0.25" reel tape | Digital Media in Practice | Scoop.it

Audio tape is generally A wind (oxide facing the hub of the reel). The tape is recorded/played so earlier material is at the right (i.e., tape moves left to right). This view is THROUGH the tape looking at the heads, with the magnetic coating facing away from the viewer. Track numbering starts at the top, away from the deck plate for all common audio transports, such as the Ampex 350/440, Studer A807/A810/A820, and Sony APR-5000.

THE USE OF SOCIAL MEDIA FOR ACADEMIC PRACTICE: A REVIEW OF LITERATURE

The reviewed literature suggests that social media holds promise for academia. As reported throughout the current review, students have diverse beliefs, perceptions and experiences with regard to social media technologies. Many of the studies reported a willingness among students to incorporate social media into their learning experiences (Lenhart, et al., 2010; Liu, 2010; Poellhuber & Anderson, 2011; Westermann, 2011). Likewise, the majority of faculty were supportive of utilizing social media not only to enhance student engagement but also to provide course content in a more active and participatory role (Chen & Bryer, 2012; FSSE, 2010; Tiryakioglu & Erzurum, 2010).
