On March 9th and 10th, MIT Mechanical Engineering Professor David Wallace and the MIT Office of Digital Learning hosted the Education Design-a-thon, an education hacking event for MIT students and anyone interested in education. Organizations posed challenges and attendees chose one project to work on throughout the 32-hour event.
Projects ranged from the purely virtual -- video games teaching computer program cell phone apps to help dropouts resume their education -- to the extremely tactile: robotic drawing arms and hands-on tools to help teachers design curriculum.
