Ideathon: The Future Of Islam & Tech

Come along to this one-of-a-kind seminar at London Muslim Lifestyle show to discuss how technology can be used to enhance religious education.

With technology continuing to become an integral part of our lives, the Ramadan Legacy & MuslamicMakers teams are coming together at this year’s London Muslim Lifestyle Show for Ideathon: The Future of Islam & Tech. We will be exploring how we can use technology to supplement religious education, to gain a better understanding of the role it can play in advancing Islam.

There will also an exciting panel of experts on hand, all of whom are eager to open up the discussion amongst the attendee’s to encourage development of the ideas proposed on the day.

Panellists include:

Nafisa Bakkar, Founder of Amaliah
Ismail Jelani, Co-Founder of Scoodle
Ikbal Hussein, Co-Founder of IslamicGPS
Mujahid Ali, Co-Founder of Halal Mapper and IslamicGPS

The ‘Ideathon’ will run for one hour in total. After the initial 10-minute settling-in period and introductions, the 30-minute brainstorming session will begin. It is here that we want you to work together in teams, putting forward imaginative suggestions on how technology can benefit all age groups. Investigating how we can encourage one another to fully utilise the innovative tools around us to further strengthen our Muslim faith.

Heading into the final 15 minutes, you will then be able to discuss the concepts you have formulated during the session and share your feedback with each other. Technology is only as strong as the people that use it, which is why your input is so vital!

This is an interactive forum open to everyone at the London Muslim Lifestyle Show and we want as many people as possible to participate. So come along to share your ideas and make the most of this unique opportunity.

There will be a number of exciting and engaging seminars happening across the two days, each one led by industry specific experts.
