Course Unit Page

Academic Year 2018/2019

Learning outcomes

At the end of the course the student: - will be able to understand the fundamental principles of Internet as a packet-switched network, together with the main services offered by the World Wide Web, such as electronic post, instant messaging, remote connection, the evolution of social networks or Web2 and the information search mechanisms available on the Web.

- will also have a basic knowledge of the use of electronic spreadsheets (operations, functions, graphics) and database management (creation of tables, relationships, masks and questionnaires).

Course contents

The course takes the form of a workshop for the familiarisation and literacy of simple software relating to teaching music. Technological learning environments will be analysed for the comprehension and experimenting of musical alphabets. Good practice in musical instruction and new technology in data banks and within the area of ministerial projects on the practical teaching of music will be presented and discussed. Multimedia documentation of musical experience relating to early childhood teaching will also be considered in detail.

Readings/Bibliography

Texts and materials, etc. relevant to the laboratory will be supplied by the professor.

Teaching methods

The course is organised as a laboratory and therefore tests will be both practical (assessed by the professor during the lessons) and written (to be presented or handed in to the professor at the end of the lessons).

Assessment methods

The professor will give tests based on the practical exercises held during the laboratory and at home. Each laboratory amounts to 3 CFU consisting of 24 hours of lessons in class (8 hours per CFU) and 51 hours of individual study (each CFU totals 25 hours). At the end of the laboratory the assessment will be expressed as ‘professional competence’.

Teaching tools

Lessons are normally held in the computing lab using a projector screen and interactive whiteboard and each student has a PC desktop.
