Hip-Hop-based Education

The Hip-Hop-based education framework is a student-centered holistic approach using hip-hop history, culture and music as a hook, bridge, and/or discipline to learning and teaching. Students co-design their course of study that enables them to excel and grow by using the ten artistic elements of Hip-Hop (DJing, MCing, Breakdancing, Aerosol Art, “Fifth Element” (Knowledge of Self), Beatboxing, Music Production, Fashion, Filmmaking, and Social Entrepreneurship). We reimagine the classroom in a new dimension without walls, limitations or fears: an interconnected cipher where we are constantly evolving.
