Driving Change: A Quarterly Review of DigiEduHack's upscaled and expanded 4th edition preparation
It’s been a little over two months since our big announcement, “DigiEduHack is back!”, which kicked off the domino of awareness raising, host recruitment, a new season of "DigiEduHack, the Podcast" and learning opportunities for all those with a strong interest in digital education. In this editorial, we bring you an overview of the most noteworthy developments of these past few months.
First and foremost, the registration period for hosts and participants is now open! If you're interested in organising a local hackathon during this year's #DigiEduHack days, which will take place between November 6th and 13th, you can get involved in just a few simple steps! All you need to do is fill in the registration form, consider the challenge you want participants to tackle during the hackathon, and upload it to the DigiEduHack website. We have already published several challenges on our website, so take the opportunity to explore them and gather inspiration to create your own unique challenge!
Second, we began our series of webinars or as we like to call them learning opportunities ! We believe there is no better way to complement our Hackathon than with informative webinars that feature expert guests and offer participants informative insights and inspiring discussions on the future of digital education and the role that each of us can play in this equation. The first two webinars - 1: What is the Digital Education Hackathon, the challenges of digital education and why should you participate? & 2: Unlocking the Potential of Digital Education: Exploring the European Digital Education Action Plan - have already taken place and you can watch them on our YouTube channel. Be sure to subscribe to our channel to be notified of the upcoming webinars.
But that's not all—we are thrilled to announce the launch of the second season of DigiEduHack, the Podcast! Accessible on popular platforms, our new podcast episodes are an excellent way to acquaint yourself with DigiEduHack during your daily commute, at school, or during a quick 15-minute break. We cover everything you need to know about the DigiEduHack, from what it's like to organise hackathons to what the future of digital education holds.
Last, but certainly not least, we set up the DigiEduHack Community on Discord! This is the place where future hosts and participants, as well as experts in the digital education field, come together and engage in a continuous conversation on the future of education. Joining the community and contributing to these valuable discussions is as simple as registering on our website.
And there's more to come! Stay tuned as we continue to drive change and keep you updated on the latest developments in the preparation of DigiEduHack's expanded and upscaled 4th edition.
