Educators and parents often say, “Hack Learning is based on simple solutions for problems. So, what’s one simple thing more traditional educators can do to change their mindset?”

There is indeed one thing that not just teachers can do to immediately change their mindset, and its foundation is built on one word: self-evaluation.

In another under two-minute hack, Mark Barnes is joined by Missouri principal and globally connected educator Naomi Austin, who shares her story of change.

After some serious reflection and self-evaluation, Austin decided that her assessments were not efficiently assessing her students.
