Prototyping in wonderful sunshine

Day 2 #Netacad Instructor prototyping at the #openBerlin Innovation Center

prototyping

At the instructor hackathon in Berlin, we have the most wonderful weather you can imagine. Still we have 3 project groups whereas each team consists of 5-6 people.

Today is the prototyping day and here are the problems and the proposed solutions selected during the initial phases the teams will design intelligent IoT solutions for.

Very curious about how the prototyps will look like …

traffic light

Problem: The green phase of a traffic light is not long enough for older people or for people with limited mobility.

Solution: A Sensor / App-Solution can influence the control in such a way that everyone has the required time to cross the street.

Problem: Lots of food is thrown out because too much was bought and they seem to be spoilt or are spoilt.

Solution: A sharing platform, where user can offer food available for pickup in the neighbourhood. With a link to a food blog or „Thermomix“ recipes with ideas on how to cook the food.

Problem: People searching for parking spaces create a considerable part of inner city traffic.

Solution: a sensor / app soluton showing free parking spaces. People can reserve their parking spot before they get there for a fee.

Thanks to everyone investing their time, contributing their products and knowledge in this educator hackathon.

To be continued tomorrow … pitching day.

Sounds like a platitude. If you take the time to think, how our life today looks like compared to 20 years ago … it becomes quite clear that our society faces a huge unprecedented challenge.

Our reality changes to fast, affecting all generations. It has become almost impossible to stay on top of the information tsunami.

It is the task of our education systems, to prepare the future generations to enter their work life, for a future that we do not fully know yet.

How do you do this?

A Hackathon … a teaching and learning format that opens the door for understanding digital value creation processes, showcases the technology behind it and inspires everyone to be part of the solution.

Organizing and running a hackathon is quite complex and extensive. The best way to  learn how is always to experience it yourself.

Today the FIRST #hackathon for teachers / professors / instructors/ #educators started in Berlin.

This very condensed day took us through 3 (of the 5) hackathon phases:

Inspiration phase – Ideation phase – Consolidation Phase

It is not so easy to decide and choose which idea to work on or problem to solve.
We argued, discussed, asked experts, looked at our ideas from all different angles and viewpoints … do we have a project now?
