What Free Improvisational Music and Networked Learning Have in Common

Session Two: Saturday 12:30pm–2:00pm
Room 303
Shelly Blake-Plock
Affiliation: TeachPaperless.com and the High Zero Foundation
Conversational Focus/Audience:
All School Levels
Conversation Description:

Networked learning is, in effect, a manner of tapping into a broader, dynamic, and ongoing creation, assessment, and reassessment of content and critical thinking. In music, the analogy would be to free improvisation — where musicians collaboratively set sail for uncharted waters relying on the strategies that develop out of various strata of network-mind experience.

Conversational Practice:
Participants and audience will collaborate on the creation of spontaneous music and sound performance to be mixed, remixed, mashed, and archived online. An accompanying backchannel/chat will serve as meta-discussion (and may at times lead the improvisations into totally new directions).
