To follow up the trends from an Asian perspective in globalization and technology provided by the Core Perspective, this section further discusses the recent development of mobile learning in music education and ICT in music education in Hong Kong. A detailed study of 120 teachers, including 60 in-service and 60 preservice music teachers’ concerns and expectations regarding mobile learning in the music curriculum, was conducted in 2014 and 2015, respectively, in Hong Kong. The top three concerns among teachers were equipment setup, technical support, and financial burden. The top three expectations are e-learning resources, interactive functions, and self-directed learning. This chapter proposes an ecology of ICT in music education as an “outside in-inside out” relationship, where cultural practices involving mobile learning can be brought into the school, enhanced at school, and then fed back into the digital world at large.
