On Friday 11 November, parents, pupils, teachers, school leaders and data experts gathered in small groups to search for connections and stories in publicly available data for education in The Netherlands. The same night, developers started to work on the best idea to make a visualisation or a concept for an application.
The participants of the data expeditions presented their ideas for apps to a panel with the Secretary of State, Sander Dekker of the ministry of Education, Culture and Science.
More information about the winnners of the best idea and the best concept-app or visualisation in the hackathon can be found in the Dutch version of this news item. Here is an impression of the event:
An overview of the available open data for education is now also published (available as a pdf download (Dutch).
This event was commissioned by the ministry of Education, Culture and Science.
