I have always been a fan of having some sort of background music and much to my pleasure so was my mentor teacher. Whenever the students would have to sit down and do some independent work ,which was usually at writing time my mentor would play some classical music through her computer. I noticed the children would be more engaged, talk less to one another and remain on task for longer periods of time. When reading Lovie’s blog I came across something similar that she had written about. Lovie talks about using background music with her class on prac. She also had a link to another site that lists the benefits of using music. Not only is it beneficial for their concentration, but it also aids in producing ICT rich lessons for our students.
