Oxford University Press writes, “The Oxford Handbook of Technology and Music Education critically situates technology in relation to music education from a variety of perspectives.”

The edited volume includes two chapters written by Mantie, “Thinking about Music and Technology” and “Thinking and Talking about Change in Music Education.” It also includes contributions from other ASU faculty and a current PhD student. Evan Tobias, associate professor of music education, wrote the chapters “Locating Technology within Music Education” and “Augmenting Music Teaching and Learning with Technology and Digital Media,” and Sandra Stauffer, professor of music education, wrote a chapter called “Technology, Sound, and the Tuning of Place.” Ryan Bledsoe, a PhD student in the School of Music, contributed a chapter on “Pedagogical Decision Making.”

An interactive companion website will launch soon.
