Sing2Learn Review

Fun. Effective. Powerful.  A great way to learn Foreign Languages

(Posted by Technical Editor: W. Zurek)

Women over 45, Learn a Foreign Language through Singing!

Sing2Learn combines three innovative methods to make learning easy, fun, and interesting: Sing2Learn, Sing2Pattern, and Sing2Picture. Sing2Learn uses singing to make the learning process fun and easy. Learners mimic what they hear with very little stress or mental processing. Sing2Pattern allows learners to create hundreds of sentences from simple sentence patterns and syllable patterns. Sing2imageture uses the power of visualization to enhance learners’ memorization skills through visually stimulating graphics.  All of the songs are 100% original and they emphasize simplicity, clarity, and a comfortable pace for easy learning, and are creative — which makes it fun and easy to learn.

Watch the video, Have some fun!

Still Blonde smallChief Blonde Remarks:

Sing2Learn is just what it says.  You are learning while you are singing.  Now we all know how we remember the most trivial songs, tv jingles, and radio ads that are set to music.  I’ll bet you can still sing the Big Mac song–”2 all Beef Patties…”  or how about  the Brady Bunch theme  “Here’s the story, of a lovely Lady,….”.   So you can certainly see why the Sing2Learn concept was very interesting to me when I first viewed it at the CES.

Christopher Boyd Brewer in his book Music and Learning says that music can help us learn because it will–

  • establish a positive learning state
  • create a desired atmosphere
  • build a sense of anticipation
  • energize learning activities
  • change brain wave states
  • focus concentration
  • increase attention
  • improve memory
  • facilitate a multisensory learning experience
  • release tension
  • enhance imagination
  • align groups
  • develop rapport
  • provide inspiration and motivation
  • add an element of fun
  • accentuate theme-oriented units

When you couple your knowledge of how music that you have learned has STUCK with you through the years with clear research on the Music and learning concepts–who can argue that a child or a Women over 45 can learn a foreign language or at the very least the common phrases with Sing2Learn?!

Stereovision s3d pc PCs at the Tipping Point

[ 0 ] May 27, 2010 |

Jon Peddie Research says S3D PCs will thrive if there is good content to feed demand

stereovision

There just might be a stereovision PC in your Christmas stocking this year.  Jon Peddie Research (JPR), the industry’s research and consulting firm for graphics and multimedia just completed an in-depth look at the emerging Stereo 3D (S3D) PC market. Titled, “Stereovision in PCs,” The report finds that the S3D market is poised for rapid growth in the immediate future. Close to one million dedicated S3D PCs will ship in 2010. That number will grow to 75 million by 2014 as S3D becomes ubiquitous.
 JPR S3D shipment data

 Table 1: Growth rates from 2010 to 2014
Although most PCs will be S3D capable due to the GPUs that are in them, not all PCs will be S3D PCs because they need a special monitor, glasses, and appropriate content. However, S3D PCs will be very attractive to several important market segments.
JPR’s report provides forecasts for the unit sales of the seven major applications that will take advantage of S3D on the PC:

1.      PC: Games
2.      Blu-ray DVD movies
3.      Streaming TV (IP TV)
4.      Photo-editing
5.      Home video editing
6.      Streaming video (from YouTube and other sites)
7.      Professional graphics (CAD and visualization)

“Gaming will be the vehicle for kick-starting the S3D PC market,” said Jon Peddie. “The gaming segment has the largest inventory of content and the most vocal enthusiasts who will spread the word and show their friends and families what it looks like and what it can do.”
 
Pricing and Availability
The JPR S3D PC Market Study is available for $2,995. www.jonpeddie.com   Women over 45 take note–in a couple of years, this will be the technology that you will have to stand outside of TARGET for before Christmas!  You might as well be informed about it now!
