From the Author
After much conversation, we decided that there are many problems that plague educators daily, and the solutions don't need a 5-year plan. Teachers, administrators, parents, and students need right-now answers. This is the essence of Hack Learning: solving big problems with simple ideas. We believe that after reading this book, you'll be able to make at least one immediate change at your school and in your classroom. If we've done our job well, you will make many changes that might just transform teaching and learning, and that's a beautiful thing.

Well written, articulate, concise and to the point, this book will, at the very least, generate some ideas, and at best will help you be even more effective as a teacher.

Have students be your Geek Squad! Collect meaningful data that allows you to build powerful relationships! Create a space of peace and quiet for your staff that allows them to focus on what they need to...
As an elementary principal, this book has been invaluable to me and my staff! I finally found an easy way to get teachers to learn from each other by watching each other teach. My staff meeting employ "back channels" so that everyone can and does participate! Our new teachers are surrounded by "marigolds" rather than "walnut trees".
A quick, easy, fun read with ideas you can implement tomorrow!!
They offer practical solutions to problems teachers confront each day - age-old as well as technology-driven. I must confess that as I read the hacks, many seemed a little too good to be true, however the authors had anticipated my skepticism. Each "Overcoming Pushback" section gave voice to my qualms and increased the authors’ credibility with me. I also appreciated reading "The Hack in Action" about how real teachers recently implemented the hacks.
I look forward to using some of these hacks and to learning about more in subsequent books in the series.
I particularly love the idea that this book is all about sharing ideas for what works to solve everyday problems and often with little monetary cost to schools and teachers. I love the idea of mentorship and idea exchange from this book! I have already purchased another book from this series with a plan to read and purchase more.
