I'm intrigued by the "Rockstar Nutritionist" Jill Jayne's educational methods. She presents information about nutrition (which she knows as a registered dietician) via songs she has developed as a rockstar. Jayne, Penn State class of 2004 presented a lecture "Debunk the Junk" at the State Theatre last Thursday 3/31.
While I don't think I'll be able to present psychological information via a rock song I create (no talent here except maybe the "singing in the shower" variety), Jayne's work is a reminder to keep it simple and entertaining. As April Millet says "That's edutainment!" We all have to be able to "sing that tune" in order to get through to students, especially those who aren't already interested in our topics and messages.
