Music on the web

I often ask myself, “what would I do without the internet?”. I frequently use the internet to download songs. However, I must admit that I do not really consider the copyright issues when I download music.

INCOMPETECH allows users to download free music that is available legally under the Creative Commons Licence. Music can be used in the classroom to promote relaxation, concentration and positive emotions. Music can also be used to enhance resources for students, such as powerpoint presentations, websites, wikis and blogs.

According to Krause, Bochner and Duchesne (2006), music can enhance students who are predominantly musically intelligent. IMCOMPETECH may be a valuable tool for creating effective learning experiences for these students.

According to Sieman’s Connectivism Theory learners need to make connections “...that enable them to learn more than our current state of knowing...” (2004). Music is another tool for facilitating student’s connection making and reaching diverse learners.
