Wow! I have never seen so powerful and critical a set of messages for all educators to take cognizance of - we need to remain relevant or be side-lined in our roles as teachers. Thank you for sharing - I am going to send it out to my network of educators as it is truly AWESOME! Thank you so much.

Great presentation to make us educators stop and think.  It can be very empowering with the right approach.  My favourite (among many) quotes:  "If you don't like change, you are going to like irrelevance even less..."

If schools and teachers don´t adapt to present times, students will be less motivated and have worse grades if doesn´t occur a adaption for their needs.

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.

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!

Using Technology in the Classroom: 15 Ways to Use an iPad in Middle & High Schools | Teaching Ideas and Strats | Scoop.it

"I have had the privilege of being able to plough new ground in my classroom with a class set of iPads. I now have over a year of experience in using them with my students everyday. Over that time I have had alot of trial, error and troubleshooting. But now into my second year I have the benefit of being familiar with iPads strengths and weaknesses. All of the apps in my list of 15 Ways to Use an iPad are ones that I have used with students."
