The leader of the Education element of MK:Smart promoted the Urban Data School this week.

On Monday 27 April Gerd Kortuem discussed this joint initiative, as part of MK:Smart, which aims to bring data literacy education to primary and secondary schools.

While environmental issues are taught in most schools and pupils occasionally use sensors to collect environmental data, the Urban Data School proposes that extra support is needed for pupils in terms of training to understand large complex data sets.

The Open Data Institute aims to help organisations who are using data be aware of which data they can and can’t use and to help organisations who want to publish data to make that data shareable, structured, reliable and traceable.
