The mSchools Student Awards Contest and Ceremony acknowledge and celebrate students and teachers for their accomplishments during the mSchools programme. Previously known as App Awards, this year’s edition will include App Education, the Mobile History Map Challenge and a new category: the Scratch Challenge. The mSchools Student Awards will be celebrated on 10 June, from 9:30am to 14:30pm, at the Palau de Congressos de Catalunya, in Barcelona.

The credibility of the mSchools Student Awards has been built on an extensive panel of experts and professionals in education and mobile technologies. The awards take into account creativity, coherence and technical development.

Mobile History Map is a geopositioning app that allows students to collaboratively create content on points of interest close to their schools.

This year’s Mobile History Map Challenge will be framed within two challenges:

  • “El Lloc dels Fets” (The Scene of the Facts) is based on historical facts linked to different locations across Catalonia.
  • “Elements patrimonials emblemàtics”, based on geo-positioning the emblematic heritage of Catalonia and “La Catalunya del segle XX – Records i vivències d’un temps passat” (Catalonia in the 20th century – Memories and experiences from the past).

Participation is open to all Primary and Secondary schools in Catalonia registered in the Mobile History Map platform. Not registered yet? Enter here for registration.
