Where we may be headed with tech and music learning

I had the privilege of hanging out in the VR lab the other day for the sole reason of exploring how tech can help us learn about music. Who knew researching music could be so much fun and engaging? I was transformed into a 3D space with symphonic music where I had to use my light saber to strike exploding blocks on and off the beat. What did I learn about music from this integration with tech? In short, the tech had me totally immersed in listening and playing along with the music. I’m not about the sparkly tech tools; I look for tech that supports music learning. Have to say ‘tho, I do see some VR apps having a place in teaching us about music. 🙂
