The Biophilia Educational Programme, an educational protocol that utilizes Björk's 2011 science-and-music-based app/album, will soon be integrated into the curricula of several European schools, Exclaim reports.
According to the program's website, Björk has collaborated with researchers and Scandinavian educators to further develop the Biophilia Educational Programme, which seeks to "inspire children to explore their own creativity, and to learn about music and science through new technologies".
The curriculum is designed around use of the Biophilia app, which uses screen technology to link lessons on music and science. It is intended for use by children between the ages of 8 and 15, and has previously been used experimentally at schools in Paris, Los Angeles, and Buenos Aires, though there are no reports of which specific schools will be initiating the program at this time.
The Biophilia app, meanwhile, has been inducted into the Museum of Modern Art in New York, where it is part of gallery's permanent software collection.
