Barcelona Dades Obertes Challenge Fourth edition_2021
We start this Fourth edition_2021 of the Barcelona Dades Obertes Challenge and we do so by adapting the contest to the exceptional context derived from COVID-19.
This edition has significant changes compared to previous editions with a firm commitment to digitization. These changes are applied, on one hand, to the teacher's training and on the other hand, to the presentation of the projects by students who can now also make use of other open soruce datasets, in addition to datasets published at the Open Data BCN portal.
Who can participate?
The competition is aimed preferably at students in the 3rd, 4th years of ESO and training cycles of educational centres of the city of Barcelona.
The teachers will be a key element to protect the students and introduce in the classroom the knowledge about open data that, given its transversal nature, can be worked on in any subject taught..
The participating centres will present a single project that they will have chosen from all those that their students have prepared. That project will be the one that will represent them and will be evaluated by the jury of the contest, in accordance with previously established and public criteria.
The Barcelona's City Council, organizer of this contest, also with the collaboration of the Consorci d'Educació de Barcelona and the CESIRE, offers teachers the possibility of participating in a Specific training plan about open data, with the aim of facilitating learning on open data sources, the tools for its treatment and representation and also the availability of data in the Open Data BCN portal.
The conditions for access are the availability of places and effective participation in the contest Barcelona Dades Obertes Challenge Fourth edition_2021.
