At the end of the FuturED global digital challenge, all teams are required to complete the final submission process. Submissions must be in the form of a project presentation (several formats will be indicated and allowed), including audio, video, and pictures.
The deadline for submissions is November 24, at 6:00 pm (CET time).
Each team will be then invited to present their work for a preliminary evaluation by a panel of judges during a dedicated official review session (dates to be confirmed). Each team will be invited to share a presentation of no more than five minutes to show the panel the work.
At this first stage of evaluation, the final decisions of the judges are to be based on the following parameters:
– Consistency of the project proposal with the proposed challenge;
– Feasibility/Sustainability of the project proposal (quality of planning in terms of time, economies, space, organization, technology, etc.);
– Level of innovation and creativity of the project proposal;
– Social added value the project proposal brings to the target community;
– Quality and comprehensiveness of the final presentation.
The panel will assign a score to each parameter, which will then determine the ranking of each participating team.
The top ten highest-scoring teams will be announced in the days before the closing ceremony. As finalist teams, they will take part into a second stage of evaluation, which will take place in the context of the closing ceremony, in early December, 2020.
At this second stage of evaluation, the panel of judges will be composed of different experts, some of which will be members or leaders from prominent organizations, while others will be outstanding representatives from the sector of education and innovation.
Each finalist team will be re-invited to share a presentation of no more than five minutes to show the panel the work. The panel will assign a new score to each parameter, which will then determine the ranking of each finalist team.
