This is a fairly recent (~2 months old) view of a student today.

* Did you know that Secretary of State Arne Duncan has said that the majority of students will be minority students this school year?

* Did you know that the amount of homework assigned weekly be teachers varies from 2.9 hours in grades  K-5 to 3.2 in grades 6-8 and 3.9 in grades 9 - 12?

Additional information in this infographic looks at the percentage of students engaged in after school activities; the percentage of students with a television, computer or other electronic device in their bedroom; the average hours of sleep lost by adolescents (based on their biological clock; percentage of overweight students (ages 10 - 17) and more.

In 2013/14, I only used novels in English class and even then only to provide time away from a screen.  Every other class and activity used digital resources and engaged technology to find, sort, contextualize, and share information.   This is a very interesting infographic.

Digital devices are re-shaping the classroom. I've seen some new tools in action.  As educators, we should learn how students are using these new tools and adjust our teaching appropriately.

This definitely speaks to the support that older students will need to be successful in online programs!  For some of these students, the technology learning curve will be steep but doable....... especially if they are used to reading a book in print!

Does learning to play an instrument impact other abilities of students? Based on recent research the answer would be yes. What  abilities?  "Speech perception, the ability to understand emotions in the voice and the ability to handle multiple tasks simultaneously." We might speak of these as executive functioning skills. One quote from the post:

“There are a lot of different brain systems involved in successfully playing even a small musical piece: your auditory system, your motor system, your emotional system, your executive function system; this playing together of these brain regions, almost like in a musical ensemble.”

Learn more about how playing an instrument may impact the brain as well how music may change brain plasticity (using the acronym OPERA to describe it) and how literacy might be tested through music.

If your school has a music program this post will provide evidence to support the continued funding of the program, and if your school is considering adding music instruction it would also provide support.

Practicing a skill or an artform longterm maybe at the heart of happiness and success.
