The Impact of Music on Learning ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning

The Impact of Music on Learning ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning | Music Ed Apps | Scoop.it

"Why is it that some prefer to study with classical music playing in the background while others soothing when working on difficult Math exercises ? What is it that makes the human brain feel entertained when listening to music ? Do we have special neurons that interpret musical signals and thus fires up dopamine into different areas of our brain making us feel relaxed ?"

Technology In Music Education

Technology In Music Education | Music Ed Apps | Scoop.it

"Have you used technology today while teaching music class?

 

Since I arrived at school at 7:10 this morning I have! I started by scanning in Euphonium parts for the community band, 16 of them. That took about 5 minutes. Then I scanned all the parts for our marching band show for next fall. Three songs, all parts…. That took about one minute per song…. Three minutes and thirty seconds total. I’ve got to pause here and say that I really love the Kinolta BizHub copier/scanner our school purchased a few years ago! Scanning is fast, wicked fast! Every sheet of music I digitize is time saved later. For instance let me continue…."

I find this article very interesting to read. As a student that has attempted to bring music into the work environment of education I finally get to see the process of bringing it into the school like environment.

breezecardshawty's curator insight, October 10, 2013 11:25 AM

I think this is great especially for kids looking to get into the world of music early.

Kirsten Macaulay's curator insight, December 7, 2013 4:13 AM

Music teachers can multi-task. Technology helps us streamline the admininstration/ work to enable us to get the task of creating and making music faster with our students.

Apps and Sites That Work on All Devices for BYOT

Apps and Sites That Work on All Devices for BYOT | Music Ed Apps | Scoop.it

"“Honestly, I think we should be delighted people still want to read, be it on a Kindle or a Nook or whatever the latest device is.” By J.K. Rowling

With more and more schools launching, ‘Bring Your Own Technology’ or ‘Bringing Your Own Device’ (BYOT/BYOD) I created a symbaloo of all apps and web tools that work on all devices to help educators get started. Even though I am a firm believe, it doesn’t matter what site/app the students use to show mastery of a concept, some educators need a starting place and many have loved this symbaloo so I, of course, want to pass it along."

BYOT is a bit of a sticky wicket, but with proper planning, and an awareness of the differences of devices, it can be a reasonable and cost-effective alternative to a 1:1.

The Top 10 iPad Apps for Special Education -- THE Journal | Music Ed Apps | Scoop.it

"The iPad takeover of public education isn’t just confined to the mainstream classroom: Special needs educators, too, are finding that  iPads can be a vital tool to support independence. What sets the iPad apart from other devices is the simple and visually robust user interface that can be used by almost everyone. It’s also a highly customizable device that can be set up with applications and assistive features to support a variety of special needs."

I love these lists!

Marianne Gunn's curator insight, December 16, 2013 1:46 AM

While I do believe these apps could use a bit more work and cost a little less I am happy to see technology in special education classrooms. In many cases children with special needs cam work better with computers than they do with people.

"Good news for music teachers. We have just learned about a great booklet full of educational music apps for iPad. It is really amazing how much time and effort Samuel must have invested in this project. He reviewed several musical apps and included them into awesome visual boards with clickable icons of each app leading to its store link where you can download it."
