Human Potential, Technology and Music Education

Technology, music and education, the interrelations and interactions between them as well their impact on music education and young people’s lives, are explored in the core perspectives of this section. Writers describe how technology enables boundaries’ transcendence between formal and informal learning and school life and personal life, potentially providing the necessary bridge that would transform music learning. At the same time, a number of threats from the use of technology in education and music education are recognized. Further discourse and caution, as well as further research is important in order to explore and clarify potential opportunities for a more humane education and future.
