Transcript of MultiMedia Project

Do you realize the Importance of Music Programs in your school?!?! What does the Music Program have to offer? A Personal Experience. Why would a school want to cut these programs? Saving Money? Are there any upsides? Trip to New York. Music Therapy Ninja Caveman Zombie Pirates Family True, but is it worth it? Kids may focus on school more But not entirely because people dont learn the same skills, as in time management. The Facts "students who can be classified as “disruptive” total 12.14 percent of the total school population. In contrast, only 8.08 percent of students involved in music classes meet the same criteria as “disruptive.” " "Education data on more than 25,000 secondary students reveals that students who report consistent high levels of involvement in instrumental music over the middle and high school years show “significantly higher levels of mathematics proficiency by grade 12.” " Study Skills Time Management Friends An escape An Appreciation for things other kids may not be open too. Reflection This project ended up becoming a very interesting project. I think this actually ended up becoming the most awkward to write or to prepare. I have never had problems writing speeches or anything of that nature but this is a different beast to say the least. It was awkward because instead of explaining what I had learned, I now had to explain how I learned it. It was just awkward to say the least. At the same time though, it was very interesting in the overall project. After watching people’s presentations I thought as though I may have gone about this the wrong way. But as I watched I figured that I probably didn’t. This is because I wanted to know about something that I actually didn’t know a lot about but at the same time am passionate about. That is why I choose the music program topic.
The reason I choose prezi presentation is because it was something that I found could become very useful and it was something that I actually did not know much about. While still holding onto the “powerpoint-esk” concepts, it was nice to have a new spin on it…literally. The color scheme I chose because I found that it was able to put emphasis on the important ideas the best. I also really enjoyed being able to throw a youtube clip in without the computer freaking out. The youtube clip in the presentation was used to show that music is around the world, and this clip in particular showed how kids were using it as an escape, which was one of the ideas presented. Also in the presentation I threw in a personal touch. I did this because so often during speeches people throw out numbers left and right, but you really can’t relate with numbers. But if you see how it can affect someone’s life it sometimes it helps the viewer relate more. That is more or less the reasoning behind the paper.
Bibliography Suggestions Lena-Add an interview if possible. But i like the personal touch. It helps add emphasis.

Megan~ Really nice. Maybe add a video. I like the color differences. Maybe add a little bit more. Rough Draft No video
Less pictures
