Abstract and Keywords

This chapter considers the questions Where is technology within music education? and Who is affected and how? from a perspective drawn from sociology and in particular the sociology of music education. The chapter discusses the emergence of a totally technologized society, akin to the “totally pedagogized society” identified by Basil Bernstein, and consider its implications for music technology and music education. The chapter suggests that many students exist in an educational technotopia that offers great potential within models such as informal music learning for more equitable models of music education.

Keywords: sociology, totally pedagogized society, totally technologized society, informal music learning, equity
