Senior Specialist (Music)

How can authentic assessment tasks allow the assessment of the Learnng Outcomes specified?

How can there be a good fit between authentic assessment tasks and the learning outcomes to be assessed?

The purpose of this pilot project was to co-develop a set of authentic assessment tasks that were aligned to the Music Syllabus’ Learning Outcomes at Stage 2 (Primary 3 and 4) and Stage 4 (Secondary 1 and 2); and examine the effectiveness of how teachers could meaningfully measure students’ development in music through Listening, Creating and Performing.

The presentation aims to share insights of the possibilities of incorporating authentic assessment in the music classroom and identify key considerations for the design and implementation of authentic music assessment at the Primary and Lower Secondary levels.

What new pedagogical approaches should I take to enable effective learning with technology that is ubiquitous, flipped, self-directed, and collaborative?

How does collaborative music making take place on an online platform?

Aligned with Singapore’s vision to become a Smart Nation, students should be enabled to navigate and thrive in a culture of innovation and experimentation while the teaching practice pervasively adopts digital and smart technologies. As emerging learning technologies transform the way students learn and create into becoming self-directed, collaborative and active, teaching practice will need to evolve accordingly. The design of music resources in the student learning space (SLS) has therefore leveraged technological affordances to make music learning an experiential, collaborative and interactive process.

The exhibition booth will host real-time demonstrations, both ready and beta-phase SLS digital resources, a meeting point as well as the concurrent session.

Aligned to the STP, the following will be addressed:

  1. Knowledge gaps and attitudes towards how technology may be leveraged for learning and how SLS resources can be used;
  2. How technology has been created for accessibility, for the benefit of basic and beginning users; and
  3. How technology transforms teaching and creating musically
