Hands-On Project 2014 - "Digital Society"

18 Teams - 41 participants - 26 countries

How can Mobile Money improve the living conditions in a society, specifically in the rural areas? Do remote knowledge transfer and distance learning, for example via MOOCs, work as well as in-class lectures? And can social inequalities be overcome by closing the Digital Divide?

These are only some of the questions the participants of the Hands-on project 2014 addressed in the four-week project from 12 June to 10 July 2014.

18 international teams took the challenge and worked on individually chosen topics on the Digital Society. Based on their teams’ research, they created Digital Mindmaps in which they visualized their findings.
