Day 1 #Netacad Instructor Hackathon at the#openBerlin IoT center
The key qualifications for starting your career are not so easily defined any more as it used to be.
Sounds like a platitude. If you take the time to think, how our life today looks like compared to 20 years ago … it becomes quite clear that our society faces a huge unprecedented challenge.
Our reality changes to fast, affecting all generations. It has become almost impossible to stay on top of the information tsunami.
It is the task of our education systems, to prepare the future generations to enter their work life, for a future that we do not fully know yet.
How do you do this?
A Hackathon … a teaching and learning format that opens the door for understanding digital value creation processes, showcases the technology behind it and inspires everyone to be part of the solution.
Organizing and running a hackathon is quite complex and extensive. The best way to learn how is always to experience it yourself.
Today the FIRST #hackathon for teachers / professors / instructors/ #educators started in Berlin.
This very condensed day took us through 3 (of the 5) hackathon phases:
Inspiration phase – Ideation phase – Consolidation Phase
It is not so easy to decide and choose which idea to work on or problem to solve.
We argued, discussed, asked experts, looked at our ideas from all different angles and viewpoints … do we have a project now?
