JOIN THE 24-HOUR CODEFEST TO BUILD
INNOVATIVE SOLUTIONS AND FOSTER CURIOSITY

Challenge

We are challenging developers to think about applications that could help transform learning, both inside and outside of the classroom.

Do you have great ideas about the next generation of digital learning tools for teachers and students?

Or a way to help families stay engaged in their children’s learning?

Join us on June 27-28, 2015 to put your ideas and coding skills to the test.

  • SOLUTIONS FOR TEACHERS
    For example:
    How can we help teachers track attendance
    more easily?
    What tools can enable teachers to create more
    interactive classes?
  • SOLUTIONS FOR STUDENTS
    For example:
    How can we personalize homework assignments
    based on performance?
    What tools will enable students to keep better
    track of homework assignments?
  • SOLUTIONS FOR FAMILIES
    For example:
    How can we help families more easily track their
    kids’ progress?
    What tools could facilitate better communication
    between teachers and families?
