How hip-hop is introducing children to coding and technology
from The Economist
When Jamel Mims teaches young, lower-income minority students in New York, he doesn't deploy traditional materials like a blackboard, a whiteboard or PowerPoint. He uses a microphone — turned up loud for politicized raps — and mobile phones with augmented-reality apps. Mims's "interactive hip-hop classroom" uses music as an entry point into discussions about politics, race, class and gender.
