Second phase of the mSchools Edu_Hack: refining the proposals

At the last edition of the GSMA Mobile World Congress, MWCapitals’s digital training program, mSchools, featured various activities designed to promote the effective integration of digital technologies into the classroom. The first one, Edu_Hack, consisted of a co-creation workshop targeting teachers. Over the course of an entire day more than 400 education professionals worked on a total of 80 different ideas, innovative experiments intended to revolutionise learning methodologies.

In an effort to facilitate the implementation of these 80 projects, mSchools will organise a second Edu_Hack on Saturday, April 30, a session marking the beginning of the “mSchools Edu_Hack Refinement Phase.” In this way the teams interested in continuing to work on the educational projects will be able to begin fleshing them out at the Mobile World Centre.

In this second phase of Edu_Hack teachers will benefit from the support of experts at the Regional Government of Catalonia’s Education Department, who will mentor them and track their projects for 5 months. The aim is to implement the projects carried out in classrooms during the next academic year.
