What is a Classroom Hack?
A hack is a workaround, a jerry-rig, a clever, pragmatic answer to a problem. Teachers are some of the best hackers, because teaching a classroom full kids requires on-your-feet thinking and frequent improvisation. Small things that make your classroom easier, more fun to run each day. You won't be able to do every hack, but pick and choose and share the site with other teachers! We all learn from each other no matter how long we've been 'on the job'.
We’ve got hacks a-plenty, but you, our wonderful readers, have more than we could ever come up with on our own. Share your hack! We're looking for teaching tips and product recommendations relevant to kids of all ages. Obvious or not, geeky or not -- try us. If we think your hack's useful, we’ll post it with props (and, if you like, a link) to you. We may edit for space and style, and even add a few comments.
If you want credit, be sure to tell us your name and Web address. We’ll only use your email address to reply to you. We’ll never post it on the site without your permission, use it to spam you, or give/sell it to someone else. Also, as a general rule, we only publish first names unless you're reasonably well-known (on the Web or in the real world) -- in that case we publish first and last names. If that's NOT okay -- you want us to use only your first name, or you want to remain nameless -- please let us know when you submit your hack.
Send your hack to:
If you're representing a company you think has a hack-worthy product to share, please let us know!
We welcome pitches for reviews of products or services, but, due to the volume of email we receive, only respond to those we think would fit with the Parent Hacks vibe.
We never do any sort of "advertorial" or pay-for-positive reviews. When we do receive pitches and product samples from vendors, we will mention it up front.
All other questions, ideas, requests...
