Challenge and goals

We aim to foster a creative fusion of technology and education, yielding innovative solutions that redefine teaching and learning paradigms. Participants will collaborate intensely developing prototypes, strategies, and concepts that address the challenges posed by teacher succession and school excellence. The final competition should yield tangible prototypes, actionable strategies, and proof-of-concepts that can be piloted in real educational settings.

Expectations and requirements for the solutions and participants

The outcomes will reverberate far beyond the hackathon's duration. Successful ideas will be further refined and incubated for implementation, potentially transforming the education landscape. New tools for data-driven decisions, VR/AI-powered teacher training, digital portfolios, and more should impact educational institutions globally. The hackathon serves as a catalyst for ongoing collaboration, sparking a movement of educational innovation.
