“Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world.”
The public voting for the 17th Worlddidac Award is open from May 12th – June 9th 2016. During this period, you are invited to vote for your favourite educational products or solutions:
The result of the public voting will be taken into consideration by jury who will evaluate the products during the evaluation week in June 2016.
New publications and solutions from the education industry will be evaluated in terms of quality (teachers) and innovation (experts).
Jury of Teachers
In order to increase transparency and credibility, a jury of ten teachers from Switzerland will be assembled. They will carry out a pre-evaluation, judging the products from the perspective of everyday practice in schools. To the jury of teachers, only the documentation of the product will be presented. Two members of the jury of teachers will sit on the jury of experts. In comparison to the jury of experts, the jury of teachers will carry a one third influence over the final results.
Jury of Experts
The jury of experts consists of eight internationally renowned educational experts. They will travel to Switzerland specifically for the evaluation week from June 13th to 16th. We recommend that participants present their products to the jury of experts. The jury of experts will carry a two-thirds influence over the final results.
The decisions of both juries are final.
We have introduced a protocol, which will be followed during the assessment of the products. This should offer more transparency and can be consulted for queries following an unsuccessful participation.
The Awards will be awarded at the festive and prestigious Award Ceremony on November 8th 2016 at BernExpo in Berne. All participants and interested parties are cordially invited to join the festive ceremony.
