Mutagenic Agent : Clément Delangue

Mutation : UniShared is a powered by MakeSense project. It tries to tackle the fact that we share more and more information except in one field: education. The goal is to enable willing students, UniStars, to share their courses live over google docs and google hangouts. Other students from around the world can follow the course, enrich it and share their thoughts, comments, links, videos about it.

The New Students, in partnership with the New Teachers from E.l@b have organized a second Edu’Hack’tion on Sunday the 18th of December 2011 at the Innovation Department of the French Red Cross.

It was a great occasion to have teachers meet students and work together to help education evolve. The event started with the projection of an inspiring documentary on how to teach differently. Then the group split into 2 creative workshops:

  • How to hack the teaching of Mathematics? with Math teacher Stéphanie
  • How to hack the teaching of Sustainable Development? with Geography teacher Caroline

We are currently working on how to make these Class-Tests (see glossary) happen. Testing them will be one of the New Student’s next events!

Please come to the LearnitLabs in Paris every Monday evening to follow the progress of this project and attend word class conferences on how to change the way we learn.

Good News from Paris!

The french ministry of research just decided to give NightScience some money to organize a student contest to engage them in developing learning through research projects including scientific discovery games such as Fold-it. The Paris science museum Universcience has agreed to host the event. It will give visibility to initiatives that students will come up with to the millions of visitors they have every year.

During the Edu’Hack’tion #1, students had contributed on that application for funds. During the NightScience Track, a dozen of Edu’Hackers helped by designing a series of events to incubate the competing NightScience teams.

If you are interested in being part of the organization team or volunteering for NightScience, contact us at nouveauxetudiants@gmail.com.

This Edu’Hack’tion has been organized by :

  • Klem : Tib, does something bother you ?
  • Tib : Yeah, I get totally *schboing* to death at school !
  • Klem : And Tib... Why are you *schboing* to death at school ?
  • Tib : Well, it's totally passive ! I'm at the back of a lecture hall and there's a teacher who reads his book to me. I'd love to be active, to get to do things !
  • Klem : So, simply put, education today is really *schboing*. What do we do ?
  • Tib : You tell me, what do we do ?
  • Klem : What do we do ?
