Marketing Text A report based on the researches carried out in Italy, Denmark and Great Britain
The report presented below, based on the researches carried out by the partners of the project, not only within the European area, presents a comparative framework of key elements identified for the planning and development of a sustainable model of a remote collaborative learning environment beyond just the complete set of training tools necessary effectively use it.
The research carried out in Italy, Denmark and Great Britain have started from the development of survey tools deliberately designed to test the significance of the presence of certain elements in web portals dedicated to remote music production, and to provide a detailed analysis of the setting up and technological functionality of such portals, and to provide a detailed description of the various types of creative production practises developed there within.
- Students in the VET system in the partner countries,
- Teachers and trainers in the education and training system connected to the music public and private sectors (educational institutions, regional territorial agencies, etc.),
- Policy makers,
- Any other potential stakeholders of the project
The Report has particular merit in two ways. In one dimension is an unpublished analysis of the state of remote music production, a topic on which little it is generally written and much of that is inaccurate. In another view, it emphasizes in the remarks the outline of the international web portals which now exist, and how they were right to await the outcome of diverging practises.
The report analyses the background of remote music production, using as a starting point, some services identified with consideration of macro categories found out after an initial close examination of the main characteristics of these environments from a technical and operational point of view. This approach has facilitated the identification of the first quantitative elements of the phenomenon via research into common elements in the working environments and into the most widespread creative working practises.
the research aims to point out the spread of creative music production practises via “social networking” and identify elements useful to elaborate a new organization model of for educational activities (school, university, company) closer to those of the social community. The traditional learning model comes from these practises and it is under discussion in a radical and irreversible way.
From here the comes urgency to study and to regain in educational and training functions such new behaviours both in their social and cultural aspects and technological dimensions.
