Read this quote today on twitter that pretty much summarizes the issues we are facing at school:

"if you don't know where you're going, any road will get you there" (Lewis Carroll)

Learning and Music

Check out this NatGeographic article about music and learning environments. Make sense on how it would help students who have trouble hearing in a "noisy" environment.

I have been working with Grooveshark the past few days. Grooveshark allows you to search by song or artist, create playlists, and it has a radio function which creates your "personal" station. Its pretty cool.

This seems to have advantages over Pandora, mainly because you can search by artists. Being able to create playlists is great for a class environment.

Users upload music to Grooveshark. Thus, much of the music is improperly labelled or identified. While Grooveshark seems to have been making inroads there is some controversy over the legality of it all. I do know they recently signed an agreement with EMI.
