Student-Generated Music Videos in K-12

Presented by

Tom McFadden, The Nueva School and ScienceWithTom.com (CA)

Abstract

I've made science raps music videos on YouTube for classes ranging from undergrad to elementary. And yet I'm trying to get out of the way. Students really ought to be the creators and the stars. We all know that person creating the song learns so much much more than someone passively listening. In this session, I'll run through many of my experiments to get students more involved in the process of creation, from writing their own verse to finishing the rhyme to making their own videos.

I believe the elements of hip hop say something about the culture of many people and there backgrounds.
