Hackathon-Book   A Smart

Solution to a Complex Problem

Rationale

For decades, the educational and cultural systems in Israel have been trying to encourage reading among adolescents without any significant breakthrough. All the reading encouragement programs are based on the ideas of adults from the field of pedagogy, rather than ideas of the adolescents themselves.

GOAL

For the first time in Israel, Hackathon-Book will bring together adolescent forces, minds, and resources, alongside minds from the fields of high-Tech/technology/design/content/gaming, in a process requiring ground-breaking creative ideas that correspond with innovation and progress, to encourage adolescents to read. The challenge they will face will require them to turn book reading into a hybrid experience that combines physical and digital elements
