Purpose of the study: The objective of this study was to look into the opportunities of using the transmedia technologies in art education, in particular in music teachers’ professional training, and to introduce the results of the online survey “Transmedia Technology in Art Education” that was carried out in Ukraine among both teachers’ and university students’ for investigating their mastery of transmedia technology.
Methodology: This study was based on the online survey “Transmedia Technology in Art Education”. The survey was developed on the Google Forms platform and included 20 questions, divided into three blocks. To conduct the study, 40 students of State Higher Education Institution “Donbas State Pedagogical University” (Ukraine) and Communal Institution “Pokrovsk Pedagogical College” (Ukraine) and 31 university lecturers and secondary school teachers took part in the survey.
Main Findings: The received data and their analysis show that the concept of transmedia technology and its essence is new and unknown for both students and teachers. The survey confirms that all survey participants are active ICT users who prefer searching for and sharing information on the Internet, using electronic guides and textbooks, and creating multimedia products. Fewer respondents prefer active methods of using ICT, such as an online stream, seminars, e-journals, learning materials with QR codes. It was found that the knowledge about ICT and skills to use it is the basis for mastering the transmedia technology and implementing it in music teachers’ professional training.
Applications of this study: This study can be used by secondary school administrative staff to investigate the teachers’ mastery of transmedia technology, as well as by university teachers for implementing the transmedia strategy in music teachers’ professional training that contributes to the qualitative development of their professional competence.
Novelty/Originality of this study: The novelty of the study lies in the attempt to investigate the level of music teachers’ mastery of transmedia technology and its potential opportunities for developing music teachers’ professional competence as there is no experience of using transmedia technology in the sphere of music teacher training.
