The Italian EduHackathon online: what a success!

Great success for the first Italian EduHackathon organized and promoted by the Nexa Center for Internet and Society of the Politecnico di Torino. The event, because of the Covid-19 emergency, was held entirely online on 27-28 April 2020, experiencing a form of participatory distance event in which 20 teachers from different disciplines and from different universities (Politecnico di Torino, University of Genoa and eCampus University) took actively part. The teachers involved, divided into 5 working groups and lead by 5 experts and facilitators, collaborated intensively in the elaboration of 5 ideas (Collaborative learning, Il gioco dei Lego, Drag&Fly, Decameroom and Path to the Future), valorizing what they learned by following the EduHack online course and working together, with very good results, to the concrete development of projects and tools to improve teaching and learning in digital environments.
