Call for Presentations: 2015 Bronx CUNY EdTech Showcase!



I attended this showcase last year as a Writing Fellow at Lehman College. It was a friendly venue, including a nice lunch, and it would be a supportive group to discuss some of the technology-based work you are doing in the CUNY classroom, especially as our work has a cross-campus focus.

Join the three Bronx CUNY colleges for a very special opportunity to discuss the impact of technology across the education spectrum from high schools through undergraduate, workforce development and beyond. This year our committee seeks cross-community, cross-campus and cross-disciplinary groups and individuals to lead discussions and share success stories, ideas and roadmaps that can assist in leading, innovating and representing change. Those exemplary activities that feature collaboration, pedagogical innovation, institutional change and of course unique classroom methodologies with technology, are encouraged. Whether you consider yourself a proficient specialist, a ‘work-in-progress,’  a novice or first-time adopter, you are welcome to apply!  Click here for more information

Rap Genius in the Classroom


G.D. Peters, Substitute Lecturer, English, Lehman.
Rap Genius began as a rap lyric website, but it has since moved far beyond just rap, with unique home pages for Rock, News, and Poetry. At its heart, the ‘Genius’ sites provide a social-collaborative annotation platform. Like Wikipedia, it’s a crowd-sourced database that allows any users to add content. Unlike Wikipedia, Genius invites users to annotate documents, to break down and close read novels, short stories, poems, and a wide variety of other texts.
