Music House for Children


What do you think will be the main things we’ll be seeing in ed tech in 2018?

Technology in education is galloping at a rate that is faster than educators can cope with. Traditional methods of teaching and training currently prevail with teachers too time-poor or budget-restricted to benefit from training, or getting used to digital approaches to learning and delivery.

In the coming year educational technology will be used more effectively as a tool for imparting knowledge.

Music House for Children has invested heavily in developing online training courses to provide music skills for early years educators. The uptake has been extremely slow, partly due to preferred practical and on-site training schemes. Online training courses are becoming increasingly attractive as an option for the following reasons:

  • Competitive pricing
  • Flexible start and completion dates
  • Merging practical with theoretical activity
  • Accessible to all globally
  • Opportunity to contact, debate and exchange with other students globally
  • One on one mentor
  • Continued resources and support

What Do You Think Will Be The Main Ed Tech Challenges In 2018?

Educational institutions will have little choice but to invest in online courses, programmes and resources as budget constrains choice. Equally, Investment in educational technology is crucial to help small organisations such as Music House for Children to increase their profile in this arena, and to fine-tune all technological and digital activities on offer.
