B. Hacking the Essay Workshop
In order to expand the definition of making and learning and to ensure
that the humanities are not excluded from the conversation, the MLI
hosted a workshop entitled “Hacking the Essay” with a team of educators
from the Convent of the Sacred Heart in Greenwich, CT in November
2015. The interactive workshop focused on the humanities and STEAM
learning, with a specific focus on project development and assessment,
as well as researching, archiving, and blogging about maker space
This workshop had the following goals:
Hacking traditional methods of research, writing,
documentation, and presentation.
Exploring a new mindset and process in teaching and learning
that connects making with the humanities.
Hacking the Essay participants work on deconstructing a text.
