What's The BIG Idea?
- Whats the Big idea?
- iDEA is a national initiative that helps young people, aged 11
- to 25, to learn digital skills through achieving badges.
- You can help shape their learning and their future through
- developing online challenges that allow them to win
- career-enhancing badges, unlock new opportunities and, ultimately,
- gain nationally recognised awards that help
- them stand out from the crowd.
The first iDEAHack will take place on Saturday 12th December at the Tech City UK office at Runway East, 10 Finsbury Square. This is your chance to help shape the first 5 badges in the Bronze category for HRH The Duke of York's “Inspiring Digital Enterprise Award”.
iDEA awards are being created to reward digital talent of all kinds across the UK, the hackathon will shape how this can be achieved.
We are looking for 50 great digital creatives - we need
- Digital Makers
- Digital Engineers
- Business Development Specialists
- Full Stack Developers
- UI/UX Developers
- Graphic Designers
You will spend the morning brainstorming with your small team and come up with 3 badge ideas based on a briefing pack, then your creative lead will present them to a panel. Then you’ll spend the early afternoon with the teacher in your team listing out your learning objectives on a wiki.
Late afternoon will see you working with your graphic and UI/UX designers to build wireframes of your concept, later moving onto leveraging on your PHP/Full Stack Developers to create your development roadmap.
Over the coming weeks we’ll arrange a mid project meetup so your team can check progress and make sure you are on track for the 17th January deadline.
In early 2016, successful teams will then be invited to St James’s Palace, where you will have the opportunity to test your badge concepts with school children and showcase your work to The Duke of York.
Finish up your code in your team remotely
Submit your final app by Jan 17th 2016
Successful teams will be invited to the Launch of the next phase of iDEA which will take place at St James's Palace in early 2016
We realise it's a lot to achieve in one day, so we hope you’ll use it to push as hard in your teams as possible to develop your idea and then continue to develop your badge in your team after the Hackathon, submitting your final badge application on the 17th January.REGISTER NOW
