Grandfather of Rap R.A.P - Revolutionary Arts Proverbalization

Gav Morris's insight:

"My understanding at that time, was that there were three types of education that a person may or may not receive in their lifetime. The first one was the education that you get at home (providing that you have a home). The second was the education that you get in school (providing that you can afford to go to school). And the third one consisted of the education that you got on the streets (Providing that you lived in a city or small town)."

Message to Entrepreneurs: Don’t Be Afraid to Create the Future

Message to Entrepreneurs: Don’t Be Afraid to Create the Future | Hip Hop Education | Scoop.it
CREATE THE FUTURE is not only an ode to the innovators but also a call to action, for people to accept their “craziness”, and be unafraid to share this with the world. I am really trying to raise the awareness, that many people that have changed their industries have not done it by accepting the…

The Padagogy Wheel - It’s Not About The Apps, It’s About The Pedagogy -

The Padagogy Wheel - It’s Not About The Apps, It’s About The Pedagogy - | Hip Hop Education | Scoop.it
The Padagogy Wheel is designed to help educators think – systematically, coherently, and with a view to long term, big-picture outcomes – about how they use mobile apps in their teaching. The Padagogy Wheel is all about mindsets; it’s a way of thinking about digital-age education that meshes together concerns about mobile app features, learning transformation, motivation, cognitive development and long-term learning objectives.

The Padagogy Wheel, though, is not rocket science. It is an everyday device that can be readily used by everyday teachers; it can be applied to everything from curriculum planning and development, to writing learning objectives and designing centered activities. The idea is for the users to respond to the challenges that the Wheel presents for their teaching practices, and to ask themselves the tough questions about their choices and methods.

Vitalia Honores's curator insight, August 23, 2015 12:43 AM

El profesor Mooney se dio cuenta que sus alumnos tenían problemas para entender las lecturas asignadas, entonces, para facilitar su comprensión, decidió utilizar el método de enseñanza que consiste en crear relaciones del libro con letras de Hip Hop, en este caso utlizo el nuevo álbum "To pimp a Butterfly" de Kendrick Lamar. Una iniciativa simple, que por la capacidad con la que motiva a los jóvenes para acercarse a la literatura se ha transformado en todo un sistema educativo. Incluso el mismo Kendrick Lamar conmovido por el efecto que tuvo sobre el aprendizaje y educación de los jóvenes, realizo una visita al colegio en donde los estudiantes inspirados por el nuevo modo de ver la literatura tuvieron la instancia ideal para exponer sus poemas.

 

Aplausos para el profesor y Kendrick por entregar motivación e inspiración a estos jóvenes que tienden a ser injustamente marginados :D
