Geetha Narayanan’s ‘Zebra Questions’ about “the landscapes of education and technology”<br /> <br />Have the contours of this landscape been created by the tools of technology defining the nature and scope of the learning environment?<br />Or have the contours of this new landscape been defined by learning needs and contexts which in turn inform the creation and sustaining of digital or virtual learning worlds?<br /> <br />
Geetha Narayanan’s ‘Zebra Questions’ about “the landscapes of education and technology”<br />Are the horizons of this landscape defined by the convergence of traditional literacies integrated with conventional and new medias?<br />Or do the distributed networks of new media define both the horizon and reach of the communication and literacy agendas of teachers and educators?<br />Should the development goals of education with technology focus on the development of the brain, the intellect and the mind?<br />Or is it about developing the heart and expanding the inner self?<br />
Where to for ICT in music education research?<br /><ul><li>Look beyond harmonic and rhythmic convention; as well as those approaches
Look beyond the novice-to-expert model; as well as that model
Look at the ways in which ICT can tell us how children are thinking and behaving musically (or in any way at all) and what that might mean to us as educators</li></li></ul><li>AND DON’T FORGET SEYMOUR!!!<br />
