About

Teacherhack is a nonprofit organization, founded in May 2013, to encourage the development of Swedish education. We want to inspire teachers to hack the current curriculum to include the essential skills that students need in a digital world.

We believe that understanding that computers are programmed by code is basic knowledge. We also believe in educating students about how to handle information, content, relations, agreements, time, focus and other new aspects of knowledge.
