Music Technology can inspire poor performing pupils

Poor performing pupils learning basic skills like maths and science have been inspired by music technology. The project was devised by scientists at the University of Plymouth, and undertaken throughout the UK, Romania, Italy and Spain.

The results found that maths scores improved by over 10%. Project co-ordinator Eduardo Miranda said: "Electronic music was used as a way of engaging young people and introducing them to concepts which could then be used to teach other subjects such as maths and science."
