Participants will join in a facilitated and participatory discussion designed to make explicit the activation of a teaching, learning and engagement zone within Mozfest. The discussion will involve project shout-outs, brainstorming and the presentation of interest-based projects and ideas that participants would like to prototype, design and build during the festival. Participants will quickly present (three minutes or less) their projects, prototypes and half-baked ideas to the group and pick-up the gauntlet to become an activated educator—or “Hacktivator”—dedicated to using the web and its accompanying skills and literacies to change how people make, share and learn.

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