There were some GREAT resources included with this webinar. It took me over an hour to get through the whole thing because I would pause, open a new window, and play around at most of the links. Really fun!
Nice work
Interesting webinar on using music to aid in learning.
Wow! As a music teacher I love the way Shelly supports K-12 classes with music. There is so much information in this webinar. She begins by sharing ways to use music in the classroom (vocabulary, grammar, history, cultures, content, readings, facts, management) but gives web cites that enhance each use. A must listen to for every teacher.
