Listening to music activates large networks in the brain, but different kinds of music are processed differently. A team of researchers has developed a new method for studying music processing in the brain during a realistic listening situation.

Andrew McCluskey's curator insight, August 15, 2013 1:38 PM

Finally, a study that identifies a difference between how the brain processes vocal and instrumental music.    It's something that i have long believed is the case (and have built a business around it) but this is the first time I've seen some kind of scientific data.

 

Seems that in the presence of lyrics the brain shifts the processing of musical features towards the right auditory cortex - suggesting a left hemispheric dominance in the processing of the lyrics.

 

Now before we get all "Left brain this" and "right brain that" the study doesn't venture into the implications of the findings, but it's safe to say that with this first stone overturned - we should soon be getting a much deeper understanding of how all this works.

 

I love living today - we live in such exciting times!

This looks like a great tool to create review quizzes, using Youtube as content curation.

Bloom Learning NZ's comment, January 9, 2013 2:46 PM
Here is an update:After an hour trying to work Blubbr out, here's my feedback:

1. There is no help which makes it hard to work it out. It is beta, so i guess it will come

2. All the marketing and reviews make it appear you can play the whole video, when in fact you can only select a series of 30 second clips from the video. Therefore, don't see this as a particularly helpful review tool for training and development, more for people who enjoy trivia and quizzes.

Shame, because it looked promising!

Education And Learning Curation: Discover Thousands Video Lessons From Best Teachers With Knowmia

Education And Learning Curation: Discover Thousands Video Lessons From Best Teachers With Knowmia | Free Web Resources for Instructional Design and Technology | Scoop.it

Giuseppe Mauriello: Knowmia is new San Francisco-based startup that offers a video lesson platform for teachers and students.

Knowmia are building the largest marketplace for short-form video educational content and the tools for teachers to create and publish outstanding content.

 

 

From "About Us" on official website:

"Knowmia is a destination for learning that features short video lessons from great teachers everywhere. We help you to find what you need to succeed in school in a personal, affordable, and time-efficient way. By bringing together a wide range of video lessons and making it easy to find what you need, we help you with challenging topics, prepare you for an upcoming test or new course, and find the right teacher for your style of learning..."

 

From review article on GigaOM:

"At launch, the site includes about 7,000 videos in a broad range of subject areas, from geometry and algebra to chemistry and physics to world history and American literature. The videos, which are about one to ten minutes long, have been mostly culled from YouTube and Vimeo and then reviewed by teachers working with Knowmia to provide editorial notes, create relevant quizzes and tag content according to subject, topic and skill.

 

Going forward, Knowmia will encourage teachers, as well as public and nonprofit groups, to add more videos. As the site grows, the plan is that the initial videos and tags will provide the foundation for additional notes and teacher-provided tags, which help teachers and students discover content.

 

The idea is that if students (mostly high school, for now) need extra help in a certain subject, say algebra, they can just go to the site, search for “quadratic equation” and instantly choose from a handful of short videos on the topic.

 

Knowmia’s focus on providing curation and structure, as well as sophisticated tools for teachers, will help distinguish it from other online platforms...."

Four Doors for Busy Non-Dummies (Learning 2.0)

Four Doors for Busy Non-Dummies (Learning 2.0) | Free Web Resources for Instructional Design and Technology | Scoop.it

This is why I love the Thialgi  4 door model "Training professionals are looking for, and learners are demanding, alternatives to what has become traditional eLearning—the PowerPoint slideshow souped up with an audio component. These programs are typically very linear and do not offer much control to the learner. If you are designing training for traditional play-by-the-book learners in their 40s and 50s, this is no problem. But if you are designing for learners who grew up with Nintendo, Playstations and MySpace—the Gen Y or Millennial crowd who put the chaos in EduChaos—your audience is going to grow bored quickly."
