Learning From Lyrics

Various authors, Website, Aug 01, 2012
Commentary by Stephen Downes

I think of course that writing songs is a better learning experience than merely singing them, while singing them is better than merely listening to them. That said, the idea of linking music and learning is inherently a good one. This site, Learning from Lyrics, is an "arts integration program [that] helps young citizens to develop critical skills, essential for participation in a modern democratic society." Love the retro 1996 web site design. I definitely do not like the Bob Marley quote in idiomatic English on the front page, and the abortion-related song selections raised a red flag for me. Thanks Johnathan Chase who connected through LinkedIn.
