The coordinators of the D3 (Developing Data Literacy) Project, EUROGEO, became a signatory of the International Open Data Charter (ODC) in 2020. The aim was to seek to promote the use of data in education and training and improve people’s understanding of the importance of open data to society.
The International Open Data Charter has as a vision the aim to: establish a world in which governments collect, share, and use well-governed data, to respond effectively and accountably to our most pressing social, economic, and environmental challenges. Education is deemed to be an important aspect of its remit however to this date there have not been any initiatives from the ODC group to encourage education decision makers to encourage its use in teaching and learning, at school or in higher education.
Work done by the D3 project has also identified the lack of research in the field and examined the approaches and data tools available in the partner countries.
Karl Donert, the project coordinator, presented the work of the D3 and results of the previous YouthMetre project . View the presentation below.
