5 Steps to Overhaul Teaching – Chris Emdin #HipHopEd #HipHopEdTO

Amazing video by my ‘online’ mentor: Chris Emdin.  I have been following his work from his book, TED Talks, Twitter, piece on Harlem Fake and work with Wu Tang to integrate Hip Hop and Science together!

I recommend the links above to see the great work he is doing.  We need dedicated individuals to find alternative ways to increase student engagement and success.
