Deep Listening to the Listeningal World: EBSCOhost - 1 views

  • Deep-listening experiences, wrapped in a pedagogy of listening listening, take students far beyond the surface of their barely noticeable surround-sound environment and into the nature of listening and its workings.
  • Attentive-listening experiences occur when teachers point out specified points of focus, put questions or challenges to the listeners, or merge graphics or visuals with the sound experience itself. Graphs or maps of particular listeningal features can be helpful, since visual cues may enhance listening. Teachers can provide diagrams of the contours of the melody or depict rhythmic components of a piece through iconic symbols-staff notation, splotches of color, or geometric shapes, for example. Instruments, real or illustrated, can focus student attention on their entrance or continuing presence in the listening.
  • Engaged listening invites listeners to enter into the groove or the flow of the listening, pick a part to contribute, and consequently feel more involved in the listening. A phenomenon of "participatory consciousness"[ 5] unfolds as engaged listeners find their place in the listening, find something in the listening to hang on to (a melody, a pulse, an ostinato, a groove), and select a contribution to make back to the listening. In this way, they connect with the listening, joining the recorded listeningians and their live participant-colleagues in a listeningal team.

  • The process of enactive listening is a pathway to the performance of listening. The goal of this third level of a listening pedagogy is to continue ear training with a strong listeningianship program by allowing the listening act to guide listeningians to stylistically appropriate performance.[ 6] Not only can students learn the listening of oral cultures aurally, but they can also effectively learn the nutated listening of literate cultures by listening. In attempting to perform a listeningal selection, students gain from opportunities to hear a recording that allows them to concentrate on timbrai qualities, the dynamic How of a piece, its melodic and rhythmic components, and the interplay of its parts. Notation alone, whether from composed or transcribed works, can never fully depict all the listeningal nuances of a piece, and so listening is a helpful guide to performance.
  • Enactive listening takes time. It can be frustrating for those who have learned to use and value notation as an important means for listening's transmission.
  • Young musicians can learn songs for solo or unison voices — as well as multipart songs and selections for percussion ensembles, strings groups, and gatherings of wind players — by ear.

Music That Represents Culture: Selecting Music with Integrity: EBSCOhost - 4 views

  • The term authenticity has been applied to music in various ways. It might be used to describe a piece of music (recorded, notated, performed); the process by which the music is taught and learned ( through recordings, live models, notation); or the manner in which it is performed (venue, dress, behaviors).
  • In other words, authenticity lies within the perceptions of the individual.
  • Anthony Palmer, who teaches music education at Boston University, has said that music with "absolute authenticity" is performed (a) by and for members of the culture; (b) in a typical setting, as determined by the members of the culture; (c) with instruments specified by the creator(s) of the music; and (d) in its original language.[ 8] Inarguably, and as Palmer recognizes, attaining this level of authenticity is impossible in a school music program (unless we consider "school music" residing within a unique culture of its own). In school, music is separated from its primary source many times over. music is passed from its primary source (composer, grandmother) to an intermediary (arranger, performer, notation, recording) and channeled through a publisher or presenter to the teacher and finally to students. To confound matters, there are variants of melodies, lyrics, dances, games, and performance styles.

  • Ethnomusicologist Bruno Nettl explains that "societies differ, however, in their attitude toward musical stability; to some it is important that a song remain stable and unchanged, while in others individual singers are encouraged to have their personal versions."
  • but he believes educators must determine at what point that musical experience is no longer acceptable as representative of that culture.
  • Having clear visions of educational goals and the broad curriculum is vital to making these determinations.
  • Bennett Reimer states, "Those inner workings are themselves the project of cultural systems, so they must be revealed in their contexts, historical, cultural, and political, in order to be grasped appropriately; that is, 'knowing about' becomes an essential ingredient of artistry and of listening."[ 15] For example, children might not fully understand the meaning of "Take Me Out to the Ball Game" unless they understand what baseball is or realize that the song is traditionally sung at baseball games.
  • text in an unfamiliar language should include a translation so students understand the meaning of the words.
  • However, a culturally valid work is not necessarily bias free; and conversely, bias-free music is not necessarily culturally valid.
  • Selecting the best music to represent a culture in an unbiased manner is a process of discovery. You will first need to educate yourself before you can educate others.

  • Why is Apple’s embrace of podcasting troubling to educators? Because this easy-to-use audio-content manager just happens to sit inside a store that sells music.

      So don't buy music anyway.
  • Listening is an activity. No good audience is passive.
    • rief61
      In class, students must learn to listen. Podcasts can be repeated.
  • Done well, podcasting can reveal to students, faculty, staff, communities—even the world—the essential humanity at the heart of higher education. Among the impressive facilities and intricate processes, colleges and universities are essentially collections of human beings who seek to share the fruits of their labors with the world that helps support them. If this position seems extreme or sentimental, consider Todd Cochrane’s assertion: “Podcasting represents a new way for individuals to communicate about the things they love. They can actually broadcast content that comes from their hearts.”10 If a mass-market text on podcasting begins by stressing the affective dimension of this new medium, educators would do well to think about how they might harness that energy in their teaching and learning practices.

iPad vs Kindle vs Netbooks vs Books: What's Best for Students? | - Online Education - 51 views

  • Textbooks
    • Todd Williamson
      Obviously talking about the collegiate level...middle school textbooks would be roughly $50 per class (~$200) and used for multiple years
  • 3G wireless for $130 plus $15 or $30 per month
    • Todd Williamson
      Also has wifi on all models
  • imagine not being able to listen to music or read an e-book while surfing the web
    • Todd Williamson
      By all accounts, the iPad will be running current iPhone OS 3.1 which does allow you to listen to music while doing other things...the rub will be creating a presentation in Keynote for iPad without direct access to the web for photos...or having to shut down Safari to check your Twitter client, etc.
    I think a big miss on this article is any discussion of content creation capabilities of netbooks and iPad. Kindle and Dead Tree books don't allow extensive content creation, the iPad has limited capabilities, but netbooks open up a whole range of creative possibility. Also, it's obvious this article is geared toward college students, not middle or high school.

Do you think like a millennial? Take our quiz! - What does YOLO mean? - - 5 views

    "When they're not listening to their "rap" listening or wasting time on their "Eye-Phones," millennials are finding other ways to differentiate themselves from past generations. Members of this generation, born between the early 1980s and early 2000s, are the first generation raised in a whirlwind of technological advances. They get flack for thinking differently, maybe being a little impulsive, maybe making more money, and maybe not. So how do you fare . . . do you think like a millennial? "

Reading reduces stress levels - 20 views

    There are many ways to reduce stress levels; going for a walk, listening to listening or drinking tea are all popular ways of winding down. None of these will come as much of a surprise, but have you considered the stress reducing benefits of regular reading? A 2009 study by the University of Sussex found that reading for just six minutes can reduce stress levels by up to 68%. (The Telegraph, March 2009)

  • Are you verbal/linguistic? Then you make sense out of the world through language and can use words effectively either speaking or in writing. When you make puns and tell stories, you exhibit this intelligence.Learning strategies: read material before going to lectures; take notes of what you hear and read; describe what you have learned to others; listen to what others have learned;write out the steps/instructions to a procedure or experiment;use crossword puzzles, puns and imaginary conversations as memory devices;use your verbal/linguistic knowledge to help you study. For example, if you are taking a course in music, make up a story based on what you hear.
