Linko × Dare to Learn Hackathon

4–6 September 2017 | Kaapelitehdas, Helsinki

 

Come and experience this year's most intriguing hackathon where Linko and Dare to Learn are joining forces to present you something extremely exciting.

 

 

The CHALLENGES

In Linko × Dare to Learn Hackathon there are several tracks for the teams to choose from. In addition to an intensive learning experience, interesting workshops and new contacts, the winning team of each track is awarded with 2000 euros.

We are really excited to announce the challenges of Linko × Dare to Learn Hackathon:

 

Peer-assessment

The new Finnish curriculum emphasizes new kinds of phenomena related to learning, one of which is students’ recognition of their skills and self-assessment. Sanoma Pro is looking for innovative solutions to peer-assessment in light of the new curriculum. Sanoma Pro challenges your team to think over the assessment of learning, and the means to strengthen student activity and commitment.

NEW AGE LEARNING MATERIAL

“Sanoma Pro is looking for product- and service concepts to conform with the new curriculum. These concepts would be part of our learning materials but they would enhance and expand them fluently. For example, they could extend the stories and other content found in our materials by grounding them in the school’s physical surroundings.”

Enhancing trade unions' service experience

Akavan Erityisalat ry is asking you to create fresh ways to make the service experience better, by concentrating especially on the experience of joining the union. In this challenge, you need to combine service design, communication and marketing. 

Minecraft and phenomenon-based learning

Phenomenon-based learning sets challenges to create invigorating and fresh learning entities where the use of technology has a strong presence. Microsoft asks you to find out how the virtual world game Minecraft could be part of the phenomenon-based learning experience.
