Friends and great discussion on modular learning materials :)
Participants in this session will have the opportunity to create new learning activities or hack pre-existing ones. We'll use pre-existing modular activities or "hacktivities" as a jumping off point to brainstorm, design and develop activities that are based on participants' interests. We'll use Mozilla's tools to help introduce, instruct or apply web skills. Participants can bring their own ideas or start with pre-existing activity kits, projects and/or content created in other sessions at the Mozilla Festival.

We'll be collecting links and artifacts for the entire Hacktivate Learning track here: https://etherpad.mozilla.org/Hac...

Don't forget to fill out your profile using the Thimble Hacktivator Profile Project and post your published links to the Hacktivate Etherpad (link above):

The Hacktivity Kits are baseline, modular curriculum kits. See demos, and hack together your own hacktivities and kits using the links below!
