The HollaDeck: An Interactive Hip Hop Classroom
From internet memes to Hamilton on Broadway, we’re witnessing a convergence in the worlds of hip hop culture and academics. Fresh Ed presents the HollaDeck: an interactive experience where participants engage academic content via original hip hop music, videos and cutting-edge technology. After two successful runs at SXSWEdu, we’re excited to bring the HollaDeck to SXSW Interactive, with live performances, role-playing, and widely accessible tech such as mobile phones, AR and VR apps. Plus, learn how to create your own culturally responsive activations with the HollaDeck Kit - and be part of the paradigm shift fusing the worlds of youth culture, rap and education with technology.
- How can hip hop, youth and internet culture be used as an effective medium for interactive storytelling conveying academic and historical content?
- How can augmented reality and virtual reality applications be used in un/conventional ways to create instances of historical understanding & empathy?
- In a world where social inequity is increasingly apparent, how do we apply cultural responsiveness to the use of technology?
