First session at the Children's Media Conference in Sheffield, kicks off with a survey of kids faves. Seems that music beats computer games by 1% but nice to know music is in there. Football was tops - this is boys by the way. We must keep music options available in school.
Lord (David) Puttnam gave a great opening keynote last night encouraging schools & teachers to embrace all the new technology. I was only one of two delegates who had heard of composer Eric Whiteacre's worldwide Internet choir. David very excited, like me, by this sought of artistic collaboration.
