Music on the Web
I just downloaded a piece of music of Incompetech called Happy Alley, it was a small pop piece. I think it could how been used in a power point, a youtube clip, even a class reflection. Music has a beautiful way of positioning its audience. How do you want your students to feel? Play them a heavy metal band at 9 o'clock in the morning and you will certainly wake them up. Play them a soft piece of music and chances are you will put them to sleep. Truth is music is quite an adequate learning tool. Pieces of information can be triggered by remembering a certain beat. This may not work for every student but if incorporated correctly with other techniques it is sure to reach a greater number of students.
