A three-day online EduHackathon took place in May, organised by el Departament d'Educació de la Generalitat de Catalunya and EDURegio. Participants could "hack for the future of education", learning how to design, prototype their ideas and share them within an international community.
The EduHackathon was a co-creation initiative, designed to develop new learning scenarios that are going to be used around Europe. The main goal of this three-day online EDUHackathon was to address the 21st century educational challenges, such as:
- how to create an inclusive class with digital support?
- how to evaluate remote education?
- how to integrate robotics into primary school?
- how to encourage girls' motivation for STEM vocations?
- how to organize a hackathon with pupils in a classroom context?
During the co-creation process, design and visual thinking methodologies have been used by participants. They were asked to "trust the process!", because while "working together, ideas and proposals will arise". The process used to co-create new learning scenarios went through the following steps: empathy, problem framing, ideation, prototyping and communication.
The success of this initiative was based on enjoying teamwork, building on the ideas of others and feeling free to think outside the box.
