This session is designed to activate anyone invested in teaching others to make things! The goal will be to catalyze the educator community at MozFest and collectively develop new approaches to teaching and learning on the web. Together we'll envision prototypes, frameworks, and projects to fuel interest-based learning activities on the web. We'll explore intersections between code, content, teaching and learning. Through ideation and collaboration, we'll create paper prototypes and designs for things we want to build and/or prototype over the weekend.

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