The big final

Are you ready to transform the world?

Feel free to present your proposals in either of the two modalities. If your proposal is selected, you will take part in the final event, a day to share, to communicate, to meet, connect and learn.

1 morning, hundreds of students, teachers and innovative educational proposals.

And you, are you mSchools?

Frequently asked questions

What is the difference between the two modalities?

The Contest modality recognises the work carried out by students and teachers during the school year within the mSchools programme's initiatives: Scratch, Mobile History Map and App Education. As a novelty, programmable boards are included: Micro:bit, Arduino and ED1.

Also, this modality promotes the acknowledgement of proposals focused on the social challenges of 4 of the thematic topics.

The Open Call modality acknowledges proposals integrating other emerging digital tools and resources than those mentioned in the Contest Modality. Proposals can be related to the call for digital impulse in education carried out by the Department of Education in Catalonia. The Call is open for initiatives using augmented and virtual reality, Artificial Intelligence, digital fabrication and maker creation, audiovisual digital resources and tools, robotics and programming or other emerging technologies.

In this case, proposals can address any of the 6 thematic areas.

Can proposals not yet implemented in the classroom be submitted?

In both modalities, proposals must have already been implemented in the classroom, and in the Contest modality, proposals must have been developed during the present school year.

What happens if the proposal responds to more than one theme topic?

The form must specify the main area the educational proposal contributes to. Secondary areas can be selected.

What happens if the proposals use more than one digital tool or resource?

In the Contest modality, you may only select one digital tool option.
In the Open Call modality, you can name one main digital resource and assign secondary ones.

Can I submit a proposal already presented in other prizes and calls?

In the Contest modality, proposals can't have participated in previous prizes and calls and must have been developed during the present academic year.

In the Open Call modality , you can submit proposals that have been presented but not awarded in other competitions.

Can I submit more than one proposal per teacher?

Yes.
