Nordic Edge Expo

Reinventing Education Hackathon: Welcome

Kick off session with guest speakers from UiS and Microsoft

Join us as we kick off the Hackathon: Reinventing Education hosted by Nordic Edge Innoasis and Microsoft.

This session is for everyone with a passion for making a difference in society and education. You do not need to be a participant in the hackathon to join this session.

With Covid-19 the need to change how we provide learning has never been greater. There is an urgent need to innovate and the timing is now. We see a huge potential for innovations to help teachers and schools provide the most value to their students.

Together we will explore how we can enhance the learning experience, motivate bored students, and improve self-education. Even if it is time spent on administrative tasks, or on following up with parents, it is crucial time spent away from the ones who should get the teachers attention. There is a demand for solutions to help teachers save time where it is possible, so that they can spend it on what truly matters: the students and their learning.
