    Asking better questions  (Keynote)
    As artists, practitioners, innovators and educators we are constantly needing to question our own practice in order to have the best outcomes for our students enabling them to be musicians in the current world.

    Duncan will share stories from his own practice, reflect on global development and current ideas in education to help each of us ask ourselves better questions and connect with the broad range of students we work with. He will discuss how Innovative programmes, Technology and Tools and his department culture combine to create individualised programmes for students.

    Technology in the primary classroom  (Session 1C)

    Primary 

    Composing in the junior years can often be difficult not only for the children but for the teacher who may find it hard to engage children in a “now society”.  Children enjoy hearing their compositions straight away because it allows them to be creative, problem-solve and have pride in their work.  Digital compositions are perfect for fostering these skills.

    In this workshop participants will work through some composing activities which can be taken straight into your classroom.  This workshop will go from planning to product for the children.  Participants should bring a computer to participate.  If using an iPad or Google device please have Incredibox installed.

    Re-invigorate your music program with Music Industry Units of Competency  (Session 1D)

    Secondary 

    In this session we look at how music can link students to their real life experiences. There are 8 major Clusters from which teachers can select appropriate level Units:

    • Music Composition and Creation
    • Music Performance
    • Music Industry & Management
    • Music Literacy
    • Sound/Audio Production
    • Stage Lighting
    • Event Operations
    • Media & Promotion

    From these clusters we can create dynamic programs which engages students from whatever background, skill level and instrument they present in your classroom.

    During this session, we look at examples of music projects and participants actively contribute to the design of a VET Music program based on their knowledge of student interest in their classrooms.

    Inclusive Music Making Through Technology  (Session 1B)

    Primary Secondary 

    When looking for accessible music-making opportunities for students with a range of capabilities or special needs, technology can open many doors.  In this session Katie will share websites, apps and resources that can help eliminate barriers to music-making. Included will be a range of free and paid software/apps, specially designed creative tech gear and tips for using software and apps you already have.

    We’ll look at apps that : 

    • are easy to operate with limited motor skills
    • can be triggered through eye tracking, movement of limbs and vocalisation
    • can limit options for higher level of success (ie. scale/mode, number of notes on keyboard)
    • have a recording function
    • allow you - the teacher - to pre-define some elements (ie. load sounds on to pads)

    This session is suitable for all devices and teachers of all age groups.

    Is your school wired for sound? You will be surprised!  (Session 1A)

    Primary Secondary  

    Believe it or not, your school IT network is also a multi-channel digital audio network, just waiting to be put to creative use. And it won't upset the IT department!

    In this session we will look at how music departments are being transformed in ways that were previously unimaginable or prohibitively expensive. In fact the technology now available allows school -wide distribution of high quality audio almost everywhere, for both live sound and recording.

    Imagine being able to use programs like GarageBand or Mixcraft (as examples) to record from multiple rooms at the same time ... whether it is an adjacent classroom, instrumental studios or a performing arts theatre. Even the staff room!

    We will explore how you can start to use this technology in practical ways ... from simple recording between rooms, computer music workstations and live sound/PA applications. In reality the options are vast as you begin to realise the possibilities of connecting multiple areas with audio. Having the infrastructure already available means that you can get started by simply connecting an interface (which has normal audio inputs and/or outputs) to an existing network point or installing some low cost software on any computer (PC or Mac) ... or both! You can then choose where you want the audio to come from and go to between any devices on the network.

    All will be abundantly clear as we connect a small demonstration network during the session.

    Escape Rooms! How To Create Your Own Digital Escape Room and Make Any Topic Engaging  (Session 3B)

    Primary Secondary 

    Escape rooms make introducing topics, reinforcing learning and teaching concepts engaging and fun for students. And who doesn’t want that in their music classes?

    The basic concept of an escape room is that students work in teams to solve puzzles or answer questions to discover a secret code - or series of codes - which will allow them to “escape” the room or solve a mystery.  And they only have 30 minutes to do it! It’s an engaging way to introduce a new topic or test student knowledge, it encourages critical thinking, students engage in problem solving and it involves teamwork.

    Learn how to create your own digital escape room for your music classes using Google Forms, a range of other free online tools and educational content you already have.
