Making sense of education indicators schedule

Wednesday 18th November 2015

  • Setting up the context

    by Benita Rowe and Christophe Gueret

    Introduction of the goals of the days and presentation of some education systems (Sugar, Ustad, …) as well as related education methods (Dalton, Montessori, …). The objective of this first part is to get a “big picture” of the kind of education we are speaking about and give participants a sense of what we are aiming at.

    At 10:00am to 12:30pm, Wednesday 18th November

    In Meertens institute

  • Data, what data ?

    by Jahna Otterbacher, Mike Dawson and Sameer Verma

    Break out in discussion groups for 1h and then collective discussion for 30 minutes. Each group lists on post-its a set of things they consider as relevant data to be measured. At the end of the session the post-its are grouped by categories (usage of software, usage of devices, social activities, …) and we look into how much of this is covered by the software presented earlier.

  • Data sharing ethics and standards

  • Education indicators

    by Giulia Rotundo, Roeland de Kok and nikolay vitanov

    What kind of indicators can be used to match education and raw-data ? This session is a discussion over current indicators, standardised tests, policy making, … During the discussions everyone is invited in listing on a common pad the different educators that are listed or suggested. This common pad will be used as input for the following session. During this session we can have a look at existing visualisations too.

  • Visualising indicators

    by Sameer Verma

    Break out in discussion groups for 1h and then collective discussion for 30 minutes. Each group look at the different indicators listed on the shared pad and think about a set of visualisations which can be used for them. We then gather back together and look at the global picture. This global picture could probably take the form of a dashboard having the different kind of visualisation grouped together. The policy makers in the room can look at the output and say if this is something that could be useful to them.
