The integration of technology in teaching evolved and grew rapidly during the 1990s. Computers and software became more powerful and many teachers developed internet-based resources for their classrooms. The power of the internet as a teaching tool was immediately obvious, however teachers struggled then, as they do now, to find time to develop resources. In 2003 we decided to create a website of resources dedicated to secondary classroom music teachers and students. Beginning with aural skills, we moved on to the elements of music which became the foundation of the site.
e-lr continued to grow organically and now supports teaching and learning in over 500 schools across Australia, New Zealand and Singapore. Many schools that subscribed in the early days of 2004 are still with us today. We are extremely proud of the array of resources e-lr offers teachers and students. The content of the site has been influenced by feedback from subscribers, our knowledge of curriculum design and our experience in the music classroom. We hope our website saves you many hours of work and provides an immediate benefit to your students!
