Discussion Questions 
  1. We have just started to analyze these data. We are interested in your experience, your questions about our data in order to explore it further.
  2. Our data mirrors the general literature, girls interact more socially with the technology while boys are engaged in "interest-driven practices", identifying as geeks, gamers, creative, etc. Should we be concerned about these gender differences? Do these differences have implications for how we design our learning environments?
  3. Should we be concerned that students are not doing very creative things with technology in school? Given the changing nature of the work world, how can we engage students in entrepreneurial ways in our music education classrooms?
  4. How might we create greater connections between students' creative technology use in-school and outside of school? How might we harness the creative potential of digital media use in our classrooms in order to continue to be relevant, allowing students to express themselves in new ways?
