The open public data that over the last years has been published is a source of huge potential benefit to schools.

Open public data can serve as a source to the school in many different ways, for instance so that the pupils can make their own analysis of data that they utilise different visualisation tools or by using avaiable images.

The presentation is going to provide a short overview of what is meant by open data, followed by examples of how public data can be put to use in education.

During fall more material on this topic will be published as a part of a Vinnova finansed project.

The project has the potential to reach a group of possible users of open data – teachers and pupils – that so far are using open data very little, but where the benefit of such use might be huge, for instance by improving the understanding of the data that society is gathering, as well as a better understanding of data and statistics.
