Yee Pinn Tsin, Isabel
Universal Journal of Educational Research, v3 n10 p724-726 2015
Recent studies have shown that songs may enhance learning as they function as mnemonic devices to increase memorability. In this research, songs based on the more difficult subtopics in Chemistry were composed, encompassing many formulas, equations and facts to be remembered. This technique of song composition can be used in any subject, any point of time and any tune can be used. Songs can be utilized for any class size, from tutorials to lecture halls. It was found in this study that students understood and retained key information better. In addition, songs added variety to classroom learning experiences, lowered students' stress levels, increased enjoyment and engaged students more effectively by catering for students with different learning styles.
