The DigiEduHack 2020 edition has been launched, and interested organizations can register to become hosting venues of online hackathons, physical hackathons or blended models! The next series of Digital Education Hackathons will take place on 12-13 November 2020.
The DigiEduHack 2020 is the annual meeting point for educational stakeholders of all background to meet and co-create the future of education. Part of the European Digital Education Action Plan, DigiEduHack is organised as a network of co-creative hubs that aim to bring out user-driven innovative solutions to educational challenges.
The main DigiEduHack event will be hosted by Hochschulforum Digitalisierung and DAAD (German Academic Exchange Service), under the German Presidency of the Council of the European Union, while numerous of local events will take place at the same time all in Europe and beyond: local hosts, from universities to schools to NGOs or companies, can join the movement and contribute to play an active role to bring innovation in education and become part of a Europe-wide community envisioning the future of education in a digital age. The plan is that the local hosts would arrange a 24-hour hackathon during 48 hours and have the freedom of choosing the times themselves.
DigiEduHack gathers stakeholders from all the educational spectrum and provides them with a platform to co-create the future of learning and education on 8 themes, based on ongoing or upcoming educational issues faced by the European Union:
- Access and Availability
- Challenging the Foundations of Education
- Learning Spaces and Pedagogies
- The Learning Experience
- Individual Competences
- Organizational Capability
- Emerging Technologies for Education
- Data Exploitation
Last year, among 130 innovative solutions co-created in local DigiEduHack events in 21 countries, 10 finalists were selected out from 33 winning local solutions, with a very low representation of the adult education field. With this second edition, you can make the difference and bring out the needs of adult learners by engaging them in a digital co-creation experience.
Digital Education Hack is an EIT initiative under the European Commission’s Digital Education Action Plan, led by EIT Climate-KIC and coordinated by Aalto University.
