Latest update 15th April 2013 - These are some  (207!!) of the best free internet resources for education.

50 ways to use music and song in the classroom - EFL CLASSROOM 2.0

50 ways to use music and song in the classroom - EFL CLASSROOM 2.0 | TEFL & Ed Tech | Scoop.it

“Without music, life would be a mistake.” – Fredrich Nietzsche

                                                      

We could also say "Without music, teaching would be a mistake!" Music just makes any teaching job, no matter how hard, enjoyable.

We also say, “Music makes the world go ‘round” but it also makes learning happen.  Please see my presentation on this topic, for all the reasons why.   Also, this post has lots of links/resources related to using music and song in the EFL classroom.  Get all the other "50" lists to help you teach.
