We are happy to announce that the 21st to 23rd September 2020, Microsoft, together with Nordic Edge Innoasis, will host a digital hackathon with focus on innovation in education.
We invite startups, developers, students, and everyone passionate about technology and making a difference in our society to be a part of it. The hackathon will be hosted during Nordic Edge Expo.
For an introduction to the topic we recommend watching our 30 minute webinar where we discuss why the time is now for reimagining the way we learn together with Henriette Dolven, Industry Manager for Education at Microsoft and Helleik Line Syse, Project Coordinator Future Energy Hub at the University of Stavanger.
With Covid-19 the need to change how we provide learning has never been greater. There is an urgent need to innovate and the timing is now. We see a huge potential for innovations to help teachers and schools provide the most value to their students.
Together we will explore how we can enhance the learning experience, motivate bored students and improve self-education. Even if it is time spent on administrative tasks, or on following up with parents, it is crucial time spent away from the ones who should get the teachers attention. There is a demand for solutions to help teachers save time where it is possible, so that they can spend it on what truly matters: the students and their learning.
Before we kick-start the hackathon 21st September, we will run some snackable and insightful sessions that you can join. Please see the list below and sign up today.
