At the TCEA convention this week, I had the privilege of attending a reception put on by the good folks at Discovery Education. At the reception, we were introduced to Dr. Lodge McCammon, who is a Specialist in Curriculum and Contemporary Media at the Friday Institute for Educational Innovation at North Carolina State University. Lodge shared some fantastic music videos that teacher participants at Discovery’s pre-conference workshop had presented and talked briefly about his work creating music videos for Discovery Education. His videos cover advanced science, math, and social studies topics, and they are available at Discovery Education’s Streaming video site (search Lodge McCammon). We talked briefly about his work and research (including a fascinating bit about how traditional music affects the brain versus rap music’s effect), and he was gracious enough to give me a few minutes to ask him about his thoughts on music in traditional subject areas.
