Event Concept Note:


Hello Web – Hackathon aims at providing students with a platform to develop  something that can help change the way we teach the web. Teaching by conventional methods have been prevalent since time immemorial but if  we could positively use technology to develop teaching kits and evolve the existing methods of teaching, that we suppose would be step in the right direction. An atmosphere will be provided for students to sit together, ideate and build new tools that can be used to enhance the way subjects are taught, giving teaching a practical makeover.

*Certificates will be provided to all the attendees by Technopreneurs Surrogate Ventures and Mozilla Foundation.

Hackathon Mentor: Chad Sansing (Mozilla Curriculum Designer)
All the curriculum designs / teaching modules / tools build by the attendees at the hackathon will have to share concept notes on a common folder (ie. In Google Drive) as per the team number/name so that Chad can review and rate the top ones. We’ll evaluate as well.

What do the Participants create?

  • Participants will try and build teaching kits.


Examples:

  • Posters/Templates can be actually be used as charts of digital softboards by properly deploying them over the web, i.e., poster templates that we see (like the “Keep Calm. . “ poster for Thimble) are essentially HTML and CSS programs. Participants can use similar web related technologies to enhance the teaching experience.

  • An activity is an essential mode of interaction but for the world to use the activity it must be made public. Internet is probably the best way to share information. So, a deployment platform which can be used to actually share these activities or anything for that matter, can be another good prototype.
