The first edition of the civic hackathon HackforInclusion is about to start online.
20 teams of students from Umbria, Sicily, Tuscany, Apulia and Lazio have been selected to compete on the 4 challenges launched by the civic hackathon in Italy, involving more than 120 participants including students and their tutors. On the 8-9 of January they will be working on designing awareness-raising campaigns targeting different groups within their communities, supported also by external mentors experienced in communication and digital tools.
On the first day of competition, 5 online parallel events will be hosted to discuss relevant issues in the field of media and information literacy with teachers, educators, families and students. Many experts on hate speech, fake news, disinformation and digital didactic methodologies are going to share their experiences, including the Italian Deputy Minister of Education Anna Ascani.
