On today's show I went in search of the sound of educational technology.

Turns out it is an upbeat sound, bright, often evocotive of childhood.  It is sound meant to make us happy.  Sound that moves us forward. That encourages us to connect to our devices and take action. Sound that inspires us.

Sound has the power to evoke all sorts of emotion.

Check out this very cool "Emotions of Sound" site.  And see how your emotional responses compare to those of other folks.
