Abstract: Outside of schools, interactions with music and digital media are closely linked. In schools, it is difficult to keep pace with this development. Does music teaching work with digital devices other than without?
Can tasks be handled differently or even different tasks in the classroom? And can the out-of-school ways of dealing with music and digital media be included in music teaching? The contribution in self-determination theory is based on the need to develop design principles for learning situations with digital media, taking into account the ways in which young people deal with music at school. The term “design” appears as a central element of pedagogical and musical design and research. Based on this, the perspectives and usefulness of this subject-based development research (Design Based Research) will be presented using the KlangAPP project.
