Letting youngsters discover Open Data through interactive video
This project is being developed as we speak. Bottom line? How can we get youngsters to learn more about Open Data in a fun and accessible way. We chose to bring our message through interactive video, as young adults tend to be visual types. Datawijs will contain several videos about Open Data, its history, and more importantly its future and how the youngsters themselves can work with it. Starting out with definitions about Open Data, to ultimately end up creating a first application of visualisation based on existing open datasets.
