Hi Virginia. Thank you for the response. Agreed! When students participate through Hackkl they are able to show their learning through real-life experiences, while learning in a dynamic way. Students' individual ideas start to grow and eventually they are able to bounce ideas off of each other and solve real-world problems.
Hi Christina. Thank you for your comments and question! Recently Michelle and I piloted Hackkl with a group of educators and middle school students. You are totally correct! During the research phase students required a bit more guidance. As a tech director I explored options with educators involved. We agreed that utilizing mini-lessons whether it be via our Zoom sessions or as a mini-assignment would be most helpful in the future, chunking if you will. Also, Hackkl provides a platform that encourages collaboration in multiple ways (commenting, uploading video responses, etc.) Feel free to reach out if you have additional questions or want to know more about Hackkl.
