June 10, 2014 in communication, data, events

We’re very pleased to announce that we will be running an Open Knowledge Community Session entitled What has open data got to do with education?


The session will take place on June 26, 2014: 08:00 EDT/12:00 UTC/13:00 BST/14:00 CEST in Google Hangouts. It will be facilitated by Heather Leson (community builder at Open Knowledge) with talks from:

  • Marieke Guy (Open Education Working Group, LinkedUp Project)
  • Otavio Ritter (Open education data researcher, Getulio Vargas Foundation, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil). Otavio will be sharing his findings from work on paper involving a comparative analysis of school open data in England and Brazil and the availability (transparency) of government information related to primary/secondary education area.

There will also be plenty of time for furthering the excellent recent discussion that has taken place on the Open Education mailing list around the value of open data to open education (details).

We hope to see you there!!
