We’re in an age of anticipation when it comes to education and technology. How will new developments change the way we learn? What new learning tools will be implemented in the next year, the next five years, the next ten years? Although many new technologies have impacted learning today, it’s safe to say that the popularization of the internet and Youtube has made an incalculable impact.
Aside from the education-focused YoutubeEDU, countless channels dedicated to education exist—from how-to videos to history lessons. Collective Cadenza, a channel that produces what they have dubbed ‘musical video experiments’, has caught fire in the viral video community in the past few months. Known more widely as cdza, this group of young, classically trained musicians has garnered attention from big-name websites like Buzzfeed, Gawker, and even Google themselves, with their fun bi-weekly releases. While the majority of cdza’s internet fame can be accredited to their witty and humorous viral videos, such as ‘Fresh Prince: Google Translated’, which hit 600k views in the first 48 hours, the group has snuck in a couple videos that touch on more serious educational topics (while keeping their lighthearted, entertaining persona intact). Take a look at some of the videos below, and check out all their ‘experiments’ at cdzamusic.com
