Monica S Mcfeeters's insight:

Here is simple technology for inspiring students to become imaginative ,empathic,thinkers. Play the lyrics to a song then allow them to think about it. 

 

Excerpt:

“The fillip for us is twofold,” McCutcheon explains, “As an Educate Together school, we teach the children an ethical curriculum. We want the children to become more sophisticated in the way they think about moral issues but we don’t want to appeal to any particular domination because we are a non-denominational school."

 

“The other appeal is under the citizenship remit and developing the ‘children’s voice’. You can set up student councils, and so on, but what’s most important is ensuring the teachers’ moral pedagogy over the course of the day is one that promotes children’s voice.”
