Welcome to Verse Bursts
, the blog. I launched this blog to test market to coaches or quizzers some newly developed tools for remembering scriptures.
Putting scripture to song certainly is not new. But, it is effective. Statistically, we remember more lastingly what we not only hear
, but also what we see
. With that in mind, I am developing a few tools:
- Scripture Songs - these are the 272 Junior Bible Quiz verses for the Heroes of the Bible 2006-2007 Quiz Year sung to tunes. They will be available on a CD-R set as .cda audio files. This means that they are playable on a traditional CD player or on a computer.
- Scripture Songs MP3- these are the same verses as above, only in an MP3 format for those who wish to play them on either a CD which plays MP3s or for synchronizing with an MP3 player.
- Scripture Interactive! - this CD set consists of PowerPoints which include dynamic, interactive displays of verses accompanied by audio. One need not have PowerPoint software as they are saved in a PowerPoint show format which includes the PowerPoint viewer. Questions and factoids accompany the interactive verses.
Currently, I am in the process of creating beta versions of these products which I hope to distribute. This blog will then serve the purpose of receiving feedback on this project.
