Datawijs, bridge between young people and open data | Open Knowledge Belgium

Datawijs, bridge between young people and open data | Open Knowledge Belgium | Open Knowledge | Scoop.it
Open data is gaining more importance these days. Yet, a lot of young people don’t know what open data is, or how they can benefit from it. That’s where Datawijs comes in. It’s an interactive video series, that introduces teenagers and young adults to the concept of open data. The Belgian platform works with Klynt, which allows the young people to view the videos in the order they want to. Thanks to the non-linear structure, users can learn on their own pace, about what interests them at whatever time they have.

Catalyzing Science with Open Data — What is Open Data? | The Capital Chemist

Catalyzing Science with Open Data — What is Open Data? | The Capital Chemist | Open Knowledge | Scoop.it

A new data age is sweeping the nation. In February 2015, the White House hired the first-ever U.S. Chief Data Scientist, D.J. Patil, announcing that “the data age has arrived.” This accelerates Federal agency efforts to unleash the power of government data by making it available to everyone, as a strategic national asset for entrepreneurship and economic development, belonging to all American citizens because taxpayers paid to create these data. Similar initiatives are underway at international, state, and local government scales.

Open data: Strategies for impact

Open data: Strategies for impact | Open Knowledge | Scoop.it
When someone used to talk about “data for good”, chances are they were wondering whether the open data stream they relied on was still going to be available in the future. Similarly, “good with data” meant that experienced data scientists were being sought for a deeply technical project. Both interpretations reflect a state of being rather than of doing: data being around for good; people being good with data.

Important though these considerations are, they miss what should be an obvious and more profound alternative.

Good examples of fiscal data visualisation?

Good examples of fiscal data visualisation? | Open Knowledge | Scoop.it
Hi all, I'm currently collecting examples of fiscal data visualisations for a research project. The project is looking at how different kinds of visualisations and visual elements are used to narrate public finances - whether by journalists, civil society organisations or public sector bodies.
