Hackathons – the focus of the European Digital Education Hub in October

Each month, the European Digital Education Hub selects a specific theme and plans activities for its members, like online discussions and dedicated working groups.

What is a hackathon?

A hackathon is a collaborative event, during which participants come together to develop innovative solutions to specific problems, typically related to technology, computer programming, or other digital creative fields.

Hackathons can be valuable component of digital education because they:

  • provide a practical experience
  • encourage problem-solving and creativity
  • promote teamwork
  • are helpful with time management learning

The theme is connected to the DigiEduHack initiative.
