Education data examination: hackathon
A hackathon at school, using new open education data a brand new API that you use for the first time!
What are new creative ways that we can use to present parents, students, teachers, and school administrators with data about education? How can we present this data in order to gain a better understanding of our system and improve the quality of our education?
We’ll start by sleeping through class and—of course—by bringing plenty of beer and pizza. During our hackathon, DUO will demonstrate a new open API for data on education. With the help of this API and new data sets, you’ll work on a prototype that will visualize large amounts of data surrounding the theme of education.
Join us for a chance to win:
3500 to spend on an entrepreneurial, programming, or graphic design workshop; and contact with educational data organizations for the opportunity to work together and bring your prototype to life! You can spend this prize at Impact Hub or Tec-X
The afternoon prior to the hackathon, parents, teachers, school administrators, and data experts will meet in small groups to explore publicly available data in order to discover relationships and create data stories. For this activity, a data expedition toolkit has been developed. The ideas formulated and questions raised by participants during these expeditions will serve as inspiration for the hackathon. More information on the data expeditions can be found here.
