Rethinking Education: Self-Directed Learning Fits the Digital Age

Rethinking Education: Self-Directed Learning Fits the Digital Age | Music Education |

Is the one-size-fits-all, top-down classroom a misfit for the Digital Age? 


Standards-based education is ruining the way educators teach and children learn. Education should not be about teaching to the next level in education and vocation and yet, that is exactly what our current school system is designed to do.


Our goal should be to foster a love of learning for learning sake. Learning is not something that we should force onto our children to ensure they go to college and get a good job. True learning is intrinsically motivated and the reward is knowledge.

I also think there is no limit to using technology in the classroom. I think every student learns differently and integrating technology in the classroom can help students find new means of studying that works well for them. I agree that teaching students to test them all the the same level is not the way to go about it. I think that it is "destroying our youth" and causing them to be high anxiety.

Owning the experience of discovery, especially as it pertains to learning about a situation or topic, results in a deeper understanding of the situation.

Leaning towards the digital age is very important for education, because students have recently begun to center their lives around such devices like iPads, computers, and phones. This article explains the slow advances towards the use of computers and other devices that not only make our lives easier through communication, but can also do so very well through education.

Why your brain loves music

New neuroscience study sets out to explain why in some respects music offers the same sort of pleasure as a really good thriller.

Podreu descobrir que diuen els últims estudis sobre el perquè el nostre cervell li agrada tant la música.

Natalie Gaskins's curator insight, May 11, 2014 2:18 PM

One day, I would love to venture into the field that connects Neuroscience with Music and that is why this article caught my attention right away. I admit to listening to certain songs and having to completely stop whatever I am doing because it was THAT good. I always wondered why that is and why certain sounds that we hear trigger emotions, or stimulation in our brains. I can agree with what the writer said in that we set up expectations in our brains with familiar styles of music and loved to be deceived when the music takes a different direction.I also agree that it is no longer enjoyable when the music goes too astray from what my brain wanted. It just gets annoying that way! It keeps excitement in the song and makes you try to anticipate what is going to happen next. It is a way to keep the listener attentive. I know that when I song is too predictable, it quickly looses my attention. As a songwriter, I feel that this is very crucial when writing. We have to keep the audience engaged at all times. This is also why artists make certain line-up choices while performing at a gig. I thought it odd that we get a different level of satisfaction when we have paid for the music and are then anticipating the surprise. Very odd. 

I would love to venture deeper into these studies and unlock more neurological secrets. Knowledge like this can help sell music.
