by Eva Buyuksimkesyan

Abstract:

Teaching teenagers is very challenging as they frequently need to be motivated and inspired. Using songs and music in the classroom always work because music is everywhere. Songs are more than what they are. They are authentic materials. They are memorable and fun. Thus, they energize the classroom, enhance learning, they lower the learning barrier. Bringing the songs and music to the class will melt the ice and doing it with web 2.0 tools will add more spice to the lesson.
