Abstract and Keywords

This article suggests that large-scale, complex technological installations are not necessarily the ones that offer the best professional development experiences to practitioners and educators. It explores how the economist E. F. Schumacher's concept of “intermediate technology” can be used to describe small, low-cost technological tools that pervade the daily working lives of music teachers. These tools are likely the ones that will support professional development.

Keywords: music education, music teachers, intermediate technology, technological tools, professional development
