How Birdsong Can Change Your Classroom Forever

I received another fascinating email from Gavin McCormack about the usefulness of Birdsong. I personally love background music while I’m working.
Apparently, when birds are quiet it means there’s danger around and they are trying to keep a low profile or fly away.
McCormack says, “Deep in our DNA from thousands of years ago, lies the secret to why birdsong can ease stress, anxiety and cause a deeper concentration and spark cognitive function.”
When we introduce birdsong into the classroom, it signals students to trust they are not in danger and helps the students function more effectively. It helps the students feel safe and helps them focus.
