In an age of rapid change and almost unlimited opportunity for continuous technological innovation in schools, traditional communication and decision-making systems characterized by structure and linear process must be made more responsive. Lessons from jazz and other forms of musical improvisation can help schools develop new approaches to discussion, decision-making and experimentation which will allow schools to more fully engage technology and new educational practices, thus better meeting the often complex expectations of a diverse range of stakeholders. In this panel, we will combine discussion and audience participation in musical improvisation to explore improvisation as a tool for infusing new technologies into the design of instruction.
