Media Literacy Theme Song: Global Youth Media (You’ve got to check this)

[ 0 ] January 18, 2013 |

Embedded Media


This original song and music video was a final project created by one of JoEllen Fisherkeller’s graduate students at New York University who took her course Global Youth Media Fall 2012.  They read and discussed all the chapters in the book the student references throughout.  For the final project, students are required to synthesize what they have learned from the course, and they have to address a real audience outside the classroom demonstrating what they have learned and suggesting a course of action.  Joel McIlven (a.k.a. “appl juc”), interested in hip hop education, created a rap… And it’s quite catchy!
