Yes - no point in having all of this wonderful software if no-one knows how to use it, or more importantly are not able to use it because the school doesn't allow access.

Calhoun Fifis's curator insight, April 7, 12:15 AM

Humans have been using music to remember information throughout the ages.   

 

How could applying songs and rhythm to a subject help us to retain information?

Choose a subject such as maths or science and explain how you could use music to help overcome a learning difficulty. 

 

Songs and rhymes can be used to remember all kinds of information - See more at: http://www.creativitypost.com/education/music_helps_memory#sthash.ygJ9qAgb.dpufSongs and rhymes can be used to remember all kinds of information - See more at: http://www.creativitypost.com/education/music_helps_memory#sthash.ygJ9qAgb.dpufSongs and rhymes can be used to remember all kinds of information - See more at: http://www.creativitypost.com/education/music_helps_memory#sthash.ygJ9qAgb.dpuf

Parents Want Kids to Use Mobile Devices in Schools

Parents Want Kids to Use Mobile Devices in Schools | music technology | Scoop.it

Some 45 percent of parents said they either had already purchased or planned to purchase a mobile device to support their children’s education, and 56 percent said they’d be willing to purchase a mobile device if their child’s school required it. About half of parents’ high school students carry smartphones to school, parents said.

By contrast, only 16 percent of schools had a policy that allowed students to use their own mobile devices in class, according to parents, while only 17 percent said their children were required to use a mobile device—owned either by the school or the student—as part of their education.
