International Coding Jam winners announced
The aim of the Coding Jam is to raise awareness on the importance of digital skills for a digital citizenship and experiment together how engaging and meaningful is to create digital content and tools, and to become makers rather than just consumers of technology.
This year the Coding Jam revolved around three major themes and the best projects were awarded under the following categories:
- Digital Creativity: Design an interactive game or an animation, develop a software or an application, build a robot or compose a song... unleash your creativity!
- Responsible Citizenship: Are you concerned about a problem affecting your school or community? How would you help to solve it using technology?
- Future of Learning: Innovators drive the change and transform the world we live in. How do you think teaching and learning should look like in the future?
The Coding Jam hackathon was led by European Schoolnet from the Future Classroom Lab in Brussels through live online sessions, while the teams taking part were working on distance at their own school or organisation. Several teams from schools and learning labs across Europe joined the hackathon through the Facebook page and on Twitter using the hashtag #HandsOnHack.
We would like to thank all the teams that took part in the Coding Jam. The four most outstanding projects were:
- SAJT 2.0 from Hungary
- CODE'r Us from Portugal
- EvGymVIE from Austria
- MM Programmers from Serbia
