The second training session for teachers enrolled in the specific Training Plan on open data in the Barcelona Dades Obertes Challenge took place yesterday, November 27, in the Cibernàrium classrooms.
Data processing with spreadsheets and data visualization with Flourish were the new knowledge that the assisting teachers acquired or reinforced, in order to have tools to work on the projects with their students, with data from the Open Data BCN portal. See Training materials.
The latest news related to the Challenge were brought to the teachers' attention, such as the visual summary Sumeu-vos al Repte, the recognition of the initiative by Eurocities or the participation of the students and teachers of the winning center of the Second Edition_2019, INS Vila de Gràcia, in the final event of the World Data Viz Challenge 2019 Barcelona-Kobe, an educative centre that was also visited by representatives of educational centres in the city of Kobe.
We thank all the participants again for their interest and effort. The next session will deal with infographics and close the training block. We also remember that participation in the contest can also be done without attending this training plan and directly presenting a project as indicated in the Rules and the Call for registration.
