New educational content for the data society
The open data policies are useful in the context of a society that knows how to extract value from data. The educational system must take a leading role. We propose two types of issues:
- Include, in child educational programs, content aimed at all citizens understand the information constructed from data, especially numerical data, tables and graphs.
- Teach how to use data from specialties (vocational training and university). For example, application development from data, data visualization, data journalism ...
The goals are:
- Improving citizens' ability to understand information and contribute to society of the data
- Increase the number of re-users and extract greater value to open data
