Open data for education

Pupils, their parents, teachers and school management all need access to relevant and structured information about their form of education. Transparency of the available data is crucial. The available open data about education in The Netherlands offers opportunities that we wanted to explore further.

Together with the ministry of Education, Culture and Science, Waag Society organised a day focused on all the possibilities of open data for education. It contained a data expedition, to collect data stories of users, and a hackathon to develop new concept for applications with open educational data that suit the needs of users. Waag Society developed a toolkit for the open data expedition that can be re-used for similar expeditions of other open data.

This event was commissioned by the ministry of Education, Culture and Science.

Duration of the project: 
05-05-2016 to 30-11-2016
