Join EduHack to tailor the hackathon format to solve problems that you have in education, together with your students, partners and community.

WHAT WE DO

EduHack aims to work with the potential of innovation as a co-creation process, embedding this practice in co-designing the tools for organising Educational Innovative Hackathons. This will be achieved by establishing multi-stakeholder Educational Innovative Hubs in each partner country.

The Hubs aim to bring together the expertise from local educational fields, innovation centres, universities, industry, local government, IT, creative individuals and companies, to name but a few. Working within these Hubs will include local meetings and workshops in addition to two intense short-term international mutual-learning and exchanging workshops. The function of these is to gather the necessary input to design the format of the hackathon. Crucial issues will also be explored which will be “hacked” during four different hackathons that take place in different partner countries throughout the course of the project. Educational Innovative Hackathons take place in Latvia, Estonia, Turkey and Spain and they are organised to test and improve the tools, as well as to find solutions to problems posed in education.

The hackathons are aimed at reaching different profiles – tech and design enthusiasts, students, industry professionals, marketing companies, museum workers/guides, software developers etc. Each hackathon will include a board of mentors which will be made up of educational experts in addition to educational practitioners ( i.e teachers, principals/headmasters).

HUBS

The World is changing, why shouldn’t education?

To hack education, we need to focus on relevant issues and collaboratively work together to achieve the best impact.

EduHack embraces radical collaboration as a paradigm to identify important challenges and to frame the scope of the Hackathons into a win-win game.

Hub members are professionals, practitioners and experts coming from different perspectives with a wide variety of interests. They participate on a voluntary basis and will jointly steer the project operations at national level, defining the scopes, the agenda, requirements and success criteria of the Hackathon.
