About this Research Topic
Our goal is to contribute to building knowledge on the twofold character of events like hackathons and maker-events, simultaneously contributing to educational and product-oriented purposes. As such, we envision that such events can act as impromptu learning opportunities sharing the foundations and characteristics of project-based learning. The aim of this Research Topic is to build a knowledge base of proposed approaches, good practices and lessons learned that can on the one hand inform the design and organization of hackathons, maker-events, datathons and others, as learning expeditions and on the other hand to situate project-based learning as a modern educational approach using hackathons, and maker-spaces as learning opportunities.
- systematization of knowledge and learning in hackathons, and maker-spaces;
- hackathons, and maker-spaces and project-based learning;
- hackathons, and maker-spaces as impromptu learning opportunities;
Keywords: project-based learning, hackathons, digital learning, devcamps, datathons
