STAR Discovery Educator quick media access(must be logged into DE)
Interest in this came right from my PLN via Plurk, Twitter and the blogs. I saw a quick post that linked me to an unusual flickr group, not that an unusual flickr group is that hard to find, but this is something that makes perfect sense: SONG CHART. The majority of images in this group are charts/graphs showing data from various songs. Take the example I created above. I took a song from DE streaming, “I See an Elephant in the Sky” by Twin Sisters, listened to the lyrics and created a graph that highlights some of the data in the song. This is a great way to introduce the importance of graphs by illustrating a use outside of the norm. Would love some feedback on this. Have you ever used graphs this way? If you’ve used this with your students, how’d it go?
