DigiEduHack 2023

Registrations are now open for host organisations and participants! Seize the opportunity, let's support people-driven digital transformation in education together! Join us between 6 and 13 November!

Enabling Transformational Learning Through Digitalisation

The E-waste Circularity Challenge and Digital Waste Challenge are blended learning lesson plans that are aimed at university students. The courses are made available globally for anyone to make use of, and actively used by NGOs. The courses combine various digital learning elements with hands-on assignments - often with a focus on social learning and project-based learning. It is our desire to make these courses attractive to university students and to support transformative learning with impactful outcomes: individual behaviour change, community action, and inspiration for future careers.

We invite participants to design and prototype innovative ways to make e-waste and digital waste subject matter relevant, exciting, and engaging. This hackathon is linked to DigiEduHack in Tallinn University.

Challenge and goals

We invite participants to co-create concepts and prototypes of blended learning assets that can be used to enhance the current E-waste Circularity Challenge and Digital Waste Challenge courses. These could take the shape of interactive tools, ingenious ways of utilising existing solutions, gamification, and so on. The best solutions will be implemented in the course materials - either directly, or where relevant, with external funding.

Expectations and requirements for the solutions and participants

We would like to receive prototypes or elaborate concept notes that can be built in the future. We want the solutions to be analysed in the light of good pedagogical practices, accessibility, appeal for all genders, fit for frugal technical set-up, and so on. Not all solutions can meet such standards, but an analysis of the fit should be there.

Available Support

Facilitator to support throughout the process. Mentors from the subject matter of e-waste and digital waste, digital education, and sustainability science educators. Background materials on the subject matter.
