9.1 Frequency range

The lowest frequency humans can hear is approximately 20 Hz. The upper limit for humans is nominally 20 000 Hz (20 kHz), but this limit tends to decline with age, and for most of us it is well below this figure.

Learning to perform: instrumentalists and instrumental teachers - starting out
Learning to Perform began in February 2004, and runs for four years. At its heart lies a 3-year longitudinal study (Strand 1) of aspiring performers (and composers) studying on a BMus course at the Royal College of Music in London (RCM); through tracking one group of students (Cohort 2004) from the June prior to their entry to their 4-year course, and a second group of students (Cohort 2002) from the beginning of their third year, we aim to build up an overall picture of ‘learning to perform

We have the obligation to think about the future, precisely because of the type of work we do … Venturing the future is not a risk – it's a necessity of the dignity of humankind.

This first case study shows the way in which ICT is used within a classroom community:

3.4 Communicating your request

There is a real tension between being both personal and impersonal at the same time, appealing to individuals as you appeal to thousands. The widespread aversion to junk mail, telephone selling and email spamming means you have only a brief moment to capture the interest and attention of your audience. This poses a dilemma: how to persuade your audience that your case warrants this attention without the dangers associated with using shock tactics, being too slick or gimmicky. Through careful

Integrating conceptions of learning for advancing educational practices
Introduction: I have argued elsewhere (Desforges, 2000b) that the core function of educational research is to make a contribution to the educational enterprise. Education is society's commitment to enhancing the human condition through capitalising on human potential for learning. There are many factors involved in such a mission. Better education entails better resourcing, creativity, will, energy and resourcefulness. Researchers must make their contribution by adding to the base of knowledge a

The pensions timebomb
Over the last three decades major events, scandals and regulations have shocked the pension system. Have the public lost faith in occupational and private pensions? Should the state pension be enough to see us through our old age? And with the non-working to working ratio continuing to rapidly increase, who will pay? We hear from those that were directly affected by the scandals of the 90's and the collapse in private pensions since - and from the experts whose job it is to help us make provisi

Evaluating an evidence-based approach to designing and implementing a teaching sequence about plant
Although there is now a significant database of research evidence about students’ learning of biological concepts, there is general scepticism as to whether this research has had any impact on the practice of teachers. A likely reason for the low impact of research is that little is known about what is involved for teachers in drawing upon research findings about learning to improve practice. In this paper we present findings from a study that is investigating the process of transforming resea
