Four Four Beat Labs is a digital pedagogies incubator.

Circa 2007. Remixed in 2012.

We design curriculum, and we produce educational content originated by the influences of popular culture, music, technology, and media. We focus our products on secondary and post-secondary youth influencers. That is, teachers and students alike.

So, our aim is three-fold: (1) to design culturally-resilient analysis tools that enhance their civic engagement capacities, (2) to stimulate their social justice literacies in ways that impact just sustainabilities in the communities in which they live and work, and (3) to create open source media products that can be easily-integrated into educational standards – particularly in justice-oriented humanities instruction.

We are currently located in the School of Literature, Media, and Communication at the Georgia Institute of Technology.

Join our mailing list and receive calls for participation, updates on campaigns, and other educational resources produced by the HipHop2020 Innovation Archive

Brendan Cecere

VR Developer (GA)

I am currently earning my Masters in Digital Media from Georgia Institute of Technology. I have a multidisciplinary tech background but my specializations are in Virtual Reality design and development, UX design, and web development. I am interested in applying my academic work in an educational context. I want to explore how presenting information through new technological mediums can change how people actually interpret and internalize the information.

We are always looking for valuable collaborations!
