At the last TFO Education Forum, a more rarely discussed theme was highlighted, the impact of music on learning. Research shows that young people who participate in a structured music program have a higher graduation rate and experience less social exclusion.

On February 25 and 26, the TFO Education Forum, under the theme Learning beyond school walls. It welcomed stakeholders from the education community to discuss new educational applications offered by technological platforms.

A theme that is rarely featured was explored during this Forum, namely the impact of music on learning. To do this, lecturers whose work confirms the importance of music have been invited. For François Mario Labbé, founder from Analekta and impresario of the violin virtuoso, Angèle Dubeau, “music is a means of getting to know each other better. Portable and accessible, music opens up possibilities and horizons and is capable of exploring all human emotions. "

Associate professor at the Faculty of Education of the University of Ottawa and director of the laboratory Mus-alpha, Jonathan Bolduc, reported various research findings which indicate, among other things, that 82 % of children who participate in a structured music program graduate, compared to 68 % who were not so fortunate. Other research even confirms that children who participate in music enriched programs are half the victims of social exclusion.

If you are particularly interested in this topic, see or revisit the “ Music and ICT »By Claude Frenette, host at RÉCIT for private education and himself a composer. There are ways to use the three skills in music using ICT.

Educational Services at Groupe Média TFO took advantage of the Forum to launch a new version of the TFO education website, which aims to be accessible, interactive and closely linked to the current needs of the school world.
