 This Month's Blog

This month's blog is   Ways to Aid Short Attention Spans Linked to ADHD . Some students with ADHD have problems with an attention span that affect the learning process. Poor academic performance may be one of the outcomes of this situation. There are things that parents and teachers can try to help children who exhibit this behavior.

It is suggested that both teachers and parents learn how to help students overcome the challenges of concentrating. In this blog, we discuss simple tricks and techniques useful for educators and parents in working with children who have been diagnosed with ADHD.

Guest Blogger Kevin Taylor, author of the article, is a teacher with 10 years of expertise. For the last 4 years, the author applied various techniques to help the students overcome the problem of short attention span.

  App Of The Month
Every month we are going to feature a different iPad/iPod/iPhone educational application. Visit our ever-changing app page. (

The App of the Month for November is Mazaam - The Musical Genius By Mazaam Interactive Inc. ( iOS / Android ).

Mazaam - The Musical Genius is an edutainment app that uses classical music as an educational tool and contributes to the global development of children ages 4 to 6. Mazaam immerses children in a world populated by funny animals. The challenge? Reunite sea lion families, feed eagles or help boisterous squirrels get to bed... While listening to classical music!


  • 5 MUSICAL CONCEPTS (Pitch, Tempo, Intensity, Timbre and Harmony)

  • 15 educational games : 15-30 minute playtime per game

  • 140+ high quality classical music recordings

  • No advertising and uncontrolled purchases

  • Tested by children and approved by parents and teachers

  • No Internet connection required

While playing, children visit five playful worlds and discover masterpieces of classical music. They improve musical, cognitive and social skills while exploring the fundamentals of music: pitch, tempo, intensity, timbre and harmony.


  1. World of Squirrels (Pitch)

    Music involves low-pitched and high-pitched sounds that create melodies. The child is introduced to the pitch of sounds, accompanied by squirrels bursting with energy!

  2. World of Chameleons (Tempo)

    The tempo sets the rhythm of a musical movement. Children must differentiate between slow and fast musical excerpts. By playing with chameleons, they learn to distinguish tempo.

  3. World of Lynx (Intensity)

    Children have fun discovering the different degrees of intensity of sounds: soft or loud. As the lynx know, the contrast between these different intensities forms musical nuances.

  4. World of Eagles (Timbre)

    Timbre is the "colour" of sound, the way each sound is produced. For example, it lets us distinguish a flute from a violin. Hungry eagles help children become familiar with wind instruments and string instruments.

  5. World of Sea Lions (Harmony)

    Musical harmony contains different elements, including consonance and dissonance. Children learn to distinguish between more harmonious or more discordant excerpts with the help of likeable sea lions.


  • Best Music app for kids 2020- Educational App Store

  • Best Learning Apps for Kids 2020, PARENTS Magazine

  • Parent and Teacher Choice Award 2020

  • Children's Technology Review, Rating of 86%


Its scientific approach pedagogical method are based on several years of research led by the Canada Research Chair in Music and Learning.

Mazaam offers an intuitive and progressive framework. Visual clues provide guidance at the beginning of each game, then gradually disappear to solicit the child's auditory attention more and more. Very quickly, the child becomes capable of distinguishing, associating and identifying musical elements.

In the Mazaam app, children develop both cognitive abilities and musical knowledge, while having fun!


In Mazaam, the adult-child relationship plays a prominent role...

  • Follow the child's progress in the Parent or Teacher Zone

  • Play with the child and share his or her experience in Duet mode, which puts you in the picture in augmented reality

  Technology Tips

Tech Tip #1: How to Engage Students Utilizing Music Education Tools & Technology
Music teachers are increasingly using technology when developing new strategies for engaging students. Where we once thought of acoustic instruments, pencil, and paper as primary learning tools, it is now possible to involve students in creative music learning using technologies. Learn more in the article found: HERE.

Tech Tip #2: 6 Examples of Using Technology in The Music Classroom
Many teachers went to school at a time when technology was nowhere near as advanced as it is now. We watched as our teachers wrote on blackboards, and then whiteboards. Now we teach with interactive whiteboards. As school pupils in the pre-digital era, we were used to our teacher's piano accompaniment. Now there are backing tracks, minus one accompaniments and digital music notation available at the touch of a screen. Music teaching has changed and we must embrace technology to be successful. We cannot ignore tech in the classroom. Music and technology work very well together and are combined in many industries. Learn more by visiting: HERE.

Tech Tip #3: 5 Must-Try Music Tools for Educators Teaching Any Subject ELL Students
In this podcast episode, you'll learn from music educator Jessica Peresta about the very best music tools for educators. You'll hear about cross-curricular connections, how to work with your current technology set up, and how listening skills and movement play a role. You can find out more: HERE. is an educational portal for teachers, parents, homeschoolers and students. Visitors come from around the world to find Internet resources for their educational needs.
