I self-identify as a hacker in the sense that I like to hack educational practices. I like experimenting with mixing and remixing traditional pedagogy and analog (physical, material) student work with 21st century/hybrid pedagogy and virtual student work.
Right now, I'm trying to learn how to be a game designer and completely turn one of my classes into an RPG, so in that sense I'm trying to become a maker.
I do game, although not as much as I'd like to due to workload and family. I enjoy playing Minecraft with my son (when I can get him to stop playing Call of Duty!).
Like Neo in the Matrix, I kind of feel like I have spent most of my life asleep. I don't think I have been either a Maker, a Hacker OR a Gamer until relatively recently. I have been a consumer. Interestingly, I don't know that I learned much about my own agency in this regard until relatively late in life.
At present, I wouldn't know how to classify myself other than this: I am a connector and an enabler. I see the need to hack education with a making and a gaming philosophy. I currently try to enable hacking the education system and have recently proposed my very own hack of the Alberta Design Studies Curriculum! (Message me if you are interested in knowing about that).
So, even though I don't fit nicely into these areas, I think I will make my own designation as I go (which, I suppose, is the point!)
