Brick in the Wall vs Hole in the Wall - Caroline D Hardin (BSides Las Vegas 2014) (Hacking Illustrated Series InfoSec Tutorial Videos)

Brick in the Wall vs Hole in the Wall
Caroline D Hardin

If (school < hackerspaces) && (textbooks < wikipedia) Then While (self-motivated = true){ experiment; }

If knowledge is power, then schools make us dumb and docile. Hackers know that we learn by doing -- by asking the inappropriate questions, breaking the rules, and being too stubborn to fail. Ironically, educational theorists in ivory towers also know this -- and they are all terrified of the future. Learn how we keep them scared.

Bio: Caroline D. Hardin worked as a programmer before serving 3 years in the Peace Corps where she taught IT in high schools and teacher training colleges. She returned to the US work as Program Chair of IT and adjunct professor at career colleges. Realizing that our educational model needed hacking, she’s now a Master’s student at the University of Wisconsin-Madison in the School of Education, Curriculum & Instruction department, Digital Media program where she studies open source computer science education, disruptive academic technology, and games. She works in the UW Academic Technology department.
