Geography FM - The Music

Page history last edited by noel@... 13 years, 7 months ago

This is a link to a blog with lots of geography songs



I've just put Kenny's list and added one into an excel spreadsheet  - not sure how to make it appear on the page.

Geography Songs.xls


I created a public Google spreadsheet and its accompanying form here. To edit the spreadsheet, you can just enter the information on the form and your changes will automatically be reflected on the spreadsheet. Then if possible, add your songs to the Spotify playlist.







This is a bit of indulgence, but please bear with me... At the last flashmeeting on the 2nd of July, I suggested sharing a list of songs which could be used in the classroom for teaching purposes. This led to a discussion of how people were already using music and I proposed that we collated songs through a collaborative Spotify playlist (below), stating the context in which you have or would use the song. I am starting the ball rolling, please feel free to add your own tunes here. The link is:


Geography, eh, FM?

Great idea - thanks to Kenny and Jerry for creating the playlist and database. I've added a few more ideas - trying to keep it fairly eclectic!
