Eduhack, Hacking Education, is an Erasmus Plus project
(KA2 – Cooperation for innovation and the exchange of good
practices) developed by a group of 6 organisations across
Europe (AHHAA, HOPU, Hugin and Munin, Dublin City
University, Tekkekoy and Ergon).
Facilitating the organisation of Innovation Education
Hackathons to develop creative solutions.
The key to understanding the challenge
Hub members provide EduHack project partners with information on the current challenges in education. These are the challenges which we will solve with the Education Innovation Hackathons which we will organise throughtout the course of the project, in 2022.
Hub members are required to meet physically and/or virtually only twice (2020/2021) in their respective countries (Estonia, Spain, Ireland and Turkey). Meetings will last 1-2 hours and will be focused on the current which the faced in education from the professional perspective but also personally – as parents of children who are attending compulsory education for instance.
Three or four people in each Education Innovation Hub will be invited to International Mutual-Learning Workshops (also called learning, teaching, training activities or International Educational Hubs) which are currently happening online due to the current situation. Depending on the current health situation, these international workshops can either take place online or face-to-face. The first face-to-face meeting was held in Bassano del Grappa in the spring of 2022
We are working on the creation of technical guidelines, checklist, templates, lists of usegul programs, step-by-step instructions on how to find the right experts and praticipants for hackathons and everything that is necessary to organize an Education Innovation Hackathon.
You will find those tools, templates and guidelines here on this wbsite. We are working on them, but we can notify you as soon as we have them ready.
WHO ARE THESE TOOLS FOR?
These tools are meant for institutions and individuals active in educations, but can also be used by anyone who is interested in innovating education by organizing a hackathon.
During EduHack we will organise foru Education Innovation Hackathons in Spain, Turkey, Estonia and Italy. Once we finalise those hackathons we should have more than fifty ideas and/or solutions, approximately eight per country.
HackDay is the final event of EduHack. It will tacke place in Dublin, Ireland, and we will present the methodologies and the results of the project through workshops and presentations.
