On March 22-23 the first Open Education Hackdays will take place at the Lyceum Alpinum Zuoz. We will combine the brainpower of students, teachers, EdTech Startups and other school specialists with engineers, data analysts and designers in order to collaboratively develop the “School of the Future”.

What will the schedule look like?

What will be provided at the Hackdays?

Food and accommodation will be provided at the Lyceum Alpinum Zuoz. Be ready for a fun and beautiful weekend in the alps!

How can I participate?

The Open Education Hackdays are open to all interested persons who want to contribute to the future of schools & learning. Simply register here.

What project ideas will be presented?

The two key questions that we want to answer at our Hackdays are:

We already organised two co-design workshops in order to develop projects ideas for the Open Education Hackdays. You can find all resultant ideas from our first workshop in Zurich and second workshop in Zuoz.

We are still collecting project ideas and we’ll make sure that a diverse and promising set of the suggested project ideas will be presented at the Hackdays. You can find an overview of the candidates on our digital learning lab platform.

If you have a project idea of challenge that you are eager to present at the Hackdays, please fill in this form. We can’t wait to learn more about it!

What open resources will be provided?

We are currently gathering Open Educational Resources (OER), interesting datasets and Open Source school software, which will be presented and provided at the Hackdays.

What happens after the Hackdays?

All resulting projects will be presented at other schools throughout Switzerland to make sure that the Hackdays innovations are shared and can be replicated. We will try our best to make sure that all projects interested in continuing their work and hopefully establishing their idea at a school can do that. 

Especially promising projects will get invited to be part of an Opendata.ch/Kickstart Accelerator incubation.

What is this program about?

Lyceum Alpinum Zuoz (International Swiss Boarding School), Opendata.ch and Impact Hub Zürich’s Kickstart Accelerator joined forces to develop a new innovation format that we call “Digital Learning Lab” (Digitales Lernlabor). The initiative is grounded in Opendata.ch’s experience in developing and implementing Open (Data) Hackdays for and with diverse communities; Kickstart Accelerator’s EdTech & Learning Vision to build a stronger and internationally attractive EdTech ecosystem; and Lyceum Alpinum’s strategic development process to build a “School of the Future”.

Our vision is to create a non-partisan open platform that aligns and supports schools to initiate digital initiatives, document these projects & learnings and create visibility. In collaboration we’ll hack, prototype, idea-accelerate the “School 4.0“ – in a bottom-up & multidisciplinary manner.
