Description

OpenEd Hacks: Innovating for Education

OpenEd Hacks is an innovation challenge to hack solutions that will equip today's students and teachers with the tools to create tomorrow's learning experience.

This represents an opportunity for every educator who cares enough to improve the education system and every student brave enough to challenge the status quo to reinvent education through prototyping and design thinking.

Participants are encouraged to tackle challenges at the intersection of education and technology, including but not limited to:

  • Access to anywhere-anytime learning that builds creative, computational and collaborative skills
  • Developing 21st century competencies i.e. coding, empathy and design principles
  • Applying gamification to engage and motivate students in the classroom
  • Utilizing data analytics to customize learning
  • Using social networking to enhance collaboration


How does it work?

ProtoHack is a 12-hour experience where you will build a prototype that communicates an idea visually. During ProtoHack you’ll learn how to use the best prototyping tools in the industry, network with like-minded people with various backgrounds, become a better product person, and receive access to prototype tools, learning communities, and prizes worth over $15,000.

Although we encourage you to try some prototyping tools prior to attending ProtoHack, we will begin ProtoHack with an educational workshop on how to use some of the top prototyping tools.

You'll work with teams of 4 to 6 people over 12 hours to produce a prototype. At the end, your team will present on stage to a panel of judges consisting of business leaders, innovators, and designers to get feedback.
