Can Hip Hop Save Us: Part II

As a follow up to the popular session “Can Hip Hop Save Us?” from SXSWedu 2016, this panel asks how vibrant youth culture and technology can be used to create meaningful and culturally relevant learning experiences for young people. What is the role of artists in shaping the way young people learn? How can artists, educators and technologists work together to build new models of learning that reflect the culture of the youth we serve? In a conversation between musicians, educators, and artists, we will explore the relationship between education, experience, entertainment, and culture.
