During the last months I’ve been busy posting in NurtUp’s blog about the topic “hacking learning”. Since I have kept this site quite inactive, I’ve decided to share some of the ideas here as well. From now on, every time I share my musings at NurtUp I’ll also share some of the ideas here, with a link to the content. Since it’s been a while, I’ll make a summary of all the posts!
