USING HIP-HOP TO TEACH COMPUTER SCIENCE – Earsketch

http://www.gatech.edu/newsroom/release.html?nid=139831

Earsketch was designed by School of Music Associate Professor Jason Freeman and School of Literature, Communication and Culture Assistant Professor Brian Magerko. The software was created to address the nation’s shortage of high school students, especially females and minorities, who are interested in computer science careers.

Earsketch utilizes the Python programming language and Reaper, a digital audio workstation program similar to those used in recording studios throughout the music industry. Students are remixing samples and loops to create their own tracks
