BOOK LAUNCH 2nd MAY at UCL Knowledge Lab 5.00 - 6.30pm

Two books produced by CCM staff members and other colleagues are being launched after the DARE/EMEL event next Tuesday afternoon.  You are most welcome to come along!


Evangelos Himonides will introduce:

King, A., Himonides, E., & Ruthmann, A. (Eds.). (2017). The Routledge companion to music, technology, and education. New York: Routledge.



"Distinctive contributions are always welcomed in the literature, so it was with great pleasure that I became acquainted with this edited volume that draws together valuable insights across a range of topics related to music, technology, and education. Because it fills a much-needed gap in the literature, this comprehensive, insightful, and unique volume will be applauded by music educators internationally."

—Gary McPherson, Ormond Professor and Director, Melbourne Conservatorium of Music, the University of Melbourne, Australia


John Potter and Julian McDougall will introduce:

Potter, J., & McDougall, J. (2017). Digital Media, Education and Culture: Theorising Third Space Literacies. London: Palgrave Macmillan/Springer.



"This book is for all those who realize we face new and complex problems in education today; that staying in our academic silos and engaging in business as usual will no longer do; and that digital technology can free teachers to be designers, curators, and aggregators, bringing astonishing resources to learners of all ages and in all places. It is a magnificent piece of work and a breath of fresh air." (James Paul Gee, Mary Lou Fulton Presidential Professor of Literacy Studies, Regents' Professor, Arizona State University, USA)
