Abstract

This paper presents the initial results of a study within the pedagogical ElectroAcoustic Resource Site project (EARS 2, http://www.ears2.dmu.ac.uk). The EARS 2 project consists of a web-based learning resource that introduces sound-based music to children aged between 11 and 14. Furthermore, it is accompanied by a software (Compose with Sounds) and teacher’s packs that have been developed for each learning project offered on the EARS 2 website. The teacher’s packs aim to bridge the gap between the resource and the teachers by providing further background to the topic, offering lesson plans and explaining learning outcomes for each project. The study investigated in what way the teacher’s packs combined with the web-based learning environment will be sufficient material to help a teacher teaching sound-based music without prior knowledge.
