In roughly the same way as Hackathons seek to develop apps after an extended shared session where teams get together to innovate and come up with new and unique software applications, our Educathons propitiate a similar environment, this time with the goal of developing educational projects which will have a distinct positive impact on schools.

Throughout an extended hands-on, tech intensive, BYOD workshop, teams made up of students and teachers compare their ideas about how learning should take place, their views on the future of education, areas of interest, and finally converge towards developing educational projects with the help of mentors and experts who will guide them through the design process.
Through the use of state-of-the-art tools and software, teams come up with a prototype design which will then be supported through its development and implementation.
