*Hack Your Education - Take Charge of Your Learning*
A hands-on workshop for students, teachers, parents, and/or administrators.
The focus is on how to use Web 2.0 and social media for your personal,
educational, and professional growth. The word "hack" has a couple of
cultural connotations: first, it means to find a way to do something that
may not be fancy, but gets the job done; second, it can mean an attempt to
subvert the existing system. There's something of both in "Hack Your
Education." We'll walk through building a personal learning
network, creating your online personal learning environment, managing your
digital profile, and cultivating your personal passions and life purposes.
If the goal of education is learning how to learn, then students and adults
alike face similar challenges and unique opportunities, and this is a
chance to define your own independent learning goals and your personal
educational or career path.
