DigiEduHack: let’s act together for the future of education in the digital age!
- Reading time: 2 minutes
A 24-hour contest brings together teams from Europe and beyond to solve educational challenges in the digital age.
As part of the Digital Education Action Plan of the European Commission, the European Institute of Innovation and Technology (EIT) is organising a 24-hour Digital Education Hackathon (DigiEduHack) on 3 October 2019.
The initiative, led by EIT Climate KIC and coordinated by Aalto University, will focus on the future of education in a digital age and will bring together teams of educational stakeholders and innovators in a series of events running simultaneously in Europe and beyond.
During the Hackathon, more than 50 teams will have the opportunity to brainstorm, discuss, invent and come up with solutions to specific challenges related to the three priorities of the Digital Education Action Plan:
- Making better use of digital technology for teaching and learning
- Developing digital competences and skills
- Improving education through better data analysis and foresight.
DigiEduHack is open to anyone interested – ministries, schools, universities, research organisations, other education institutions, NGOs, companies, incubators and start-ups, organisations and individuals engaged in envisioning the future of education. Its outcomes will be showcased through a mainstage event at Aalto University, Finland.
The three teams with the best solutions will each win a 5000-euro award at the end of DigiEduHack.
