Hacking is the new buzzword in engaged learning. How do hackathons contribute to a growth mindset and student learning? Learn from the project manager of NIU's Huskie Hack. NIU has been acknowledged by Major League Hacking as the nation's only mixed educational Hackathon hosting middle school to collegiate students over a 24+hour continuous period. These competitions and ideations engage learners from all interest and experience levels in open critical thinking challenges where everything is up for consideration. Hackathons can take place over several hours or days. Gain understanding of the value of this type of engaged learning experience and how it can benefit your students by exposing them to computer coding basics, computational thinking, the engineering design process, and collaborative learning.
Walk away from this presentation with an understanding of how to frame a challenge; what tools are needed to host a hack; and an outline of key logistical items and timelines for hosting.
