I have a term question that came up when I was lessoning planning with another teacher. I wanted my students to go back and change the code of a couple of assignments I created. I used the term “Hack” and the other teacher thought that we shouldn’t be using that work because it has negative connotations. I said that I felt like we need to take the word “back” and steer away from it’s negative meaning and use the word “hack” to discuss changing something already created.
I’m curious if anyone else has had this come up and what are the general thoughts.
