Sharing Some Excellent Examples of one of the Most Fun Learning Constructs Ever Conceived
Most of us have heard “teaching tunes” like the Periodic Table song featured above. What a great technique to help students learn about a subject that might otherwise be learned through rote memorization! Don't you just love this idea?
My daughter was singing the Periodic Table Song the other day and it reminded me how fun and functional this approach to learning is. When asked if she knew any other good songs like this, she was happy to share some. Then she took it to the next level and searched around for some more that she thought were good enough to share. Thanks, Jordan (I'm so fortunate to be blessed with such a fun, bright, and musically inclined daughter)!

In closing, since we're on the subject and the holidays are coming, … here's a silly little ditty of my own, The 12 Days of Ed Tech Rap, that combines my appreciation of music with my love of ed tech (although it'll be obvious pretty quickly that I ain't no rapper! Here's an original song that reflects my ‘roots-rock' musical style). Happy holidays everyone!
