Music Without Borders #edtech

You know I am all about the visualizations. I found a mashup called GeoMusic recently that will take your last.fm history and map out exactly where in the world the music you listen to comes.  While this may seem a toy at first, if you start to think about it, it quickly becomes a lesson in history as well as a conversation starter about geography.  I was quite surprised to find that one of my favorite bands was actually from South Africa.   I also had no idea that Frédéric Chopin was from Poland.  Geomucic is very intriguing application indeed.  I tried to keep this post short as it is Mother's day.
