Hillsborough, Calif. – More than 1,200 guests recently traveled from around the world on October 15 and 16 to hear 80 of the most compelling speakers in education and education innovation at The Nueva School’s 2015 Innovative Learning Conference (ILC).
Our diverse group of participants (and many more through an innovative new online partnership between the ILC and IDEO’s Teachers Guild exploring how to “spark student curiosity”) comprised administrators, curriculum developers, policy makers, classroom teachers and specialists, counselors, and researchers, representing public, charter, independent, and international schools.
Students Bring Science to Life Through Music
HILLSBOROUGH, Calif. —On Tuesday, February 11, a group of students at The Nueva School watched as their first music video “That’s Metal” went live. At first listen, the video, which they wrote, produced, and starred in, sounds like a high quality rendition of the popular Sage the Gemini song “Gas Pedal.”
If you watch closely, though, you realize this isn’t a typical hip-hop video remake. This is a classroom coming to life in a new way, and these Nueva students are at the front of the class, teaching the world about complex, scientific methodologies through rap music.
