About Times 10
Mark Barnes is the CEO and publisher at Times 10. Learn more about Mark on the Hack Learning Team page. After writing six books for three different publishers, Mark began work on the Hack Learning Series in 2014. He envisioned a different kind of education book, so he founded Times 10, in order to create a unique team and maintain an active role in every project.
Six months later, Times 10 published the fourth book in the series, and the #HackLearning movement exploded. By the end of 2017, there will be 15 Hack Learning Series books, and Times 10 is launching two new book series in 2018.
The Hack Learning Series
In 2014, Times 10 publisher Mark Barnes had an idea about three gigantic problems in schools that he felt could be easily fixed. What they needed was the perspective of a hacker–someone unaffected by the problem, who viewed its underlying issues from a different angle. Mark wrote a short blog post identifying the problems and included very easy fixes.
The post sparked thoughtful discussion, and someone suggested that schools have more concerns like the ones in the blog post–enough perhaps for a book.
Some time later, one short blog post turned into the first book in the Hack Learning Series, Hacking Education: 10 Quick Fixes for Every School.
