The Annual Interactive Multimedia Performing Arts Collaborative Technology (IMPACT) Conference

The NYU Steinhardt Programs in Music Education and Music Technology in association with IMPACT Workshops presents the second IMPACT Interactive Conference: August 3 - August 6, 2016 in New York City.

This conference will bring together school and community arts, media and music educators, university researchers, educators, and industry together for a 3-day series of interactive sessions, performances, and hands-on workshops.


This short workshop presentation will focus on highlighting the research outcomes of a year long grounded theory study of hip-hop (music, culture & pedagogies) and its impact and uses in the domain of the school, within a small group populated by musicking educators using hip-hop as a lens, practice or a way of knowing. The study group environment affords the participants to critically examine the elements that exist within hip-hop, and their viability in the musicking classroom. I will give a 30 minute presentation on the outcomes of the grounded theory research (K. Charmaz): models, theories, praxis.. etc. from the pilot study which focused on; what is known, what we would like to know and what this new or old knowledge can mean (impact) for the musicking classroom. The take aways include; activities that can be use with students, information (websites), handouts and discourses to to further teaching.
