We were delighted to have been invited by Dr Anne Emerson to deliver a seminar on the Magical Music Factory as part of this year’s seminar series for those studying on the University of Nottingham’s MA in Special Educational Needs. 19 Masters students from across the world learned about the benefits of using music technology in SEN settings and had a play in the Factory.UON SEN

The forward-thinking Earlyarts have been quick to catch onto Mr Mangle, seeing its potential as a creative, open-ended software resource (their words, honestly…..) and were kind enough to feature a blog about transforming teaching and learning with music technology from Mat Andasun.

Please take a moment to check them out and in particular, have a gander at their guide to Creative Teaching.  They wrote the guide to offer professionals a chance to build confidence in their own creativity as well as helping their children learn more effectively. Not all ten strategies will inspire you to shine, but I bet at least one of them will.

These strategies are also useful for parents and carers. If anything can reduce their stress and increase their confidence and engagement in life, then creativity can.
