This document is meant to guide educators or youth-workers in producing a 2-day inquiry-based hackathon. The goal is for adults to provide the framework and for students to drive the process and solve problems that are meaningful to them. The kit draws on activities from MaRS' Entrepreneurial Thinking Toolkit for Educators , best practices from TDSB teachers and Mozilla's Appmaker tool. The below schedule is based on a hackathon that ran at MaRS in October 2014 in partnership with the TDSB called EdAppHack.

Tackk is a site I've covered before which reminds of a cross between Smore and Pinterest for education. Their educational portal allows educators to create "class" accounts where students can create their own static page and include all types of media (i.e. images, video, text, etc). This summer they've updated their project w/ some niece features for educators to help w/ Back to School such as: collaborating w/ a "stream", promoting school events w/ a widget, more lesson plans and templates, and a contest where students can win up to a $1000 for showing off what they did this summer. Some other ways Tackk is being used is for project based learning, digital portfolios, curating the web, and more.
