Abstract [en]

This chapter will take into account and discuss innovative learning in the 21st digital and communicative century based on life-world phenomenology and Hanna Arendt’s view of democracy.  From this point of view we will address and discuss how democratic practices can offer innovative musical learning in relation to what is taking place regarding research and educational projects in Sweden and the Nordic countries.  We will mainly focus upon settings from everyday life, where human beings are more or less surrounded by and interact with music and technology (Partti & Karlsen, 2010).  Towards the end of the chapter we will also reference and provide examples of projects that are organized by governmental resources as well as ones inside the process of formal education.  We do so because official initiatives provide important information on contemporary understanding(s) of the values of music education.  Our ambition is that this particular section will contribute to further reflections on different views on the significance of music education.

            Within the international field of music education research there has been a growing interest during the last decade concerning issues of democracy.  Nordic countries have also avidly discussed and investigated questions of diversity, equality, inclusion and multi-voicedness.  The issues are particularly relevant when social settings of different kinds are seen as starting points for learning.  As a consequence of the plurality of settings that become visible when we focus on social learning and democracy today, the concept of innovative learning stands out as important to take into account.  Music can be seen as a starting-point for innovative learning in social contexts, as well as a result of the same.  Therefore, it is important to contemplate this theme in a book that is directed towards generalist teachers in the USA.
