#7 Music – How streaming services are changing the game

Music is something that Scott and I love. It’s also an interesting topic because it touches on so many of the issues we love to talk about here in the CTLT: technology, culture, and innovation. The way that society has consumed music has drastically shifted in the last century, particularly in the last 25 years. We have gone from buying physical tapes/CDs to renting access to online streaming music. We are in the midst of a new shift in the culture and technology surrounding music. Streaming music, having (legal) access to tens of millions of song at the push of a button, is changing the way we interact and even think about music. In light of the recently released Apple Music, Scott and I talk about these shifts and how they impact us and the education technology landscape. Hope you enjoy the episode!
