Hackathon: 48 hours to build digital solutions for educational planning
Everything digital has penetrated teaching and learning – but it has yet to fully integrate into the field of educational planning and management. IIEP experts see great potential for computer science, geospatial and big data, and other types of technology to offer new solutions in the way education systems function and cater to the specific needs of the communities it serves. That’s why IIEP has teamed up with Latitudes, a tech for good network organization, to host Hacking EdPlanning, the first-ever IIEP-UNESCO hackathon.
From 29-31 January 2021, this virtual hackathon will bring together developers and educational planners to create digital projects that could redefine educational planning practices. These innovative ideas – based on countries’ realities – would also offer new ways to support governments with meeting the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goal for education (SDG 4).
The hackathon will close with an exciting opportunity – open to all – to see an online presentation of all of the digital tools created during the weekend.
