Technology Pathways at KS4 Music
The option to submit sequenced or multi-tracked recordings as part of the Performing Music unit is a great way to open up Key Stage 4 courses to a wider range of pupils.This course is designed to equip you with the knowledge and understanding necessary to offer the technology pathways through GCSE and BTEC First Music. You will explore a wide range of examples and how they relate to each exam board’s mark scheme.
At the start of the day, we will look at how you can adapt your existing Schemes of Work to incorporate technology pathways alongside the traditional performing options. This will include a look at the software and hardware requirements necessary to offer this pathway and how you maximise success in this element of the course. In the afternoon, we will look at examples of pupils’ work and explore the grades that would be awarded and the feedback that teachers could provide to guide students to meet or exceed their target grades.
