Because this event is hosted by Loyola Marymount, this Hack the Classroom focuses on K-12 educators working at Catholic schools in the Los Angeles Archdiocese. Future Hack The Classroom events will be organized for other educator groups.
Technology poses an opportunity to personalize education for students, improve teacher livelihoods, and help address the great challenges facing education today. Hack the Classroom seeks to empower educators with the tools they need to “hack their classrooms” and, in doing so, transform the state of education.
