Event description
Discuss with education experts how to use hackathons to solve education challenges.

About this event

Through interactive discussions, talks and practical exercises we will learn how education hackathons work, how to organise them, and what to expect from them.

The event will take place over two days - 28th and 29th October - from 1 PM CEST till 4 PM CEST approximately, on ZOOM.

Together, we will:

  • get an overview of the most common education issues and decide which ones can be solved with a hackathon
  • get some real practice with some online tools such as Mentimeter and Mural to understand what are the issues to be solved and what guidelines you may need to develop a hackathon yourself
  • listen to experienced speakers who'll sharing their hackathon experiences
  • and finally, on the second day, we will be able to take active part in a small-scale hackathon activity.

Who is this event for?

If you're an educator or somehow involved in education (e.g. a parent, a student, an artist, etc), join us! The more diverse the group is, the richer the discussions.
