“Playing music is the brain’s equivalent of a full body workout,” says educator Anita Collins in a TED-Ed video on how playing music benefits the brain. Playing music requires the visual, auditory, and motor cortices all at once and since fine motor skills require both hemispheres of the brain, the act of playing music may strengthen the bridge between the two sides.

Personalized learning is the unique way Fulton schools customize instruction so that every student’s educational needs, diverse skills and specific interests are met.


SPLOST, the one-penny sales tax for education, has been the funding source for putting the latest technology in students’ hands.


Using a marketplace model where schools can choose from Apple iPads, Microsoft Surfaces, DellLatitudes and Dell Chromebooks to design their personalized learning technology plans, 23 of Fulton’s nearly 100 schools have rolled out nearly 17,500 devices since August.
