Schools and classrooms are complex, dynamic environments from an information and communications management perspective. How can we use digital tools to redesign and automate the many inefficiencies that arise from this complexity? If you had a Robot Secretary, what would you have it do?
This challenge invites participants to join an informal learning network to identify compelling systems challenges, share expertise, support one-another, and build practical, portable solutions that combine free, cloud-based tools like Google Apps and Apps Scripts. Challenge completion means sharing your solution back to the k-12 community as a YouPD Hack. All hacks that meet rubric requirements will earn their author the highly-wearable Robot Secretary’s Badge! Depending on the volume of submissions, submitters will be invited to a demo slam in early September at Google NYC, where they will compete for prizes and glory.
