My good friend Veri Oddfellow turned me onto this – it seemed I missed a discussion from this conference in Second Life that discussed hip-hop and it’s relationships to learning. Regardless the National Service-Learning Conference will be streaming live audio into Second Life discussion, here’s the info for anyone who may be interested:
The National Youth Leadership Council and Learn and Serve America, there are online streaming sessions from the National Service-Learning Conference, happening live in Minneapolis, this week.
