What will happen in your session?
NEXMAP’s “Open Data/Open Minds” is an equity-based data literacy and civic engagement project that combines tradition and innovation in its use of paper and electronics. While we focus on the 10-14 age group and their educators, the approach and materials support learners and learning spaces of all kinds.
What is the goal or outcome of your session?
Since this work happens at the intersection of data, edtech, and the open web with a focus on science, literacy and connected learning, the Mozilla community is uniquely suited to improve this project. Our goals at Mozfest and in this session are to find collaborators -- coders, designers, educators, advocates -- who may be interested to engage with this work and, most importantly, localize this it in their networks and communities.
I've followed this work for a long while and am glad to see this opportunity for the Mozilla Network to become familiar with it. This would be an excellent session from @esylvan & @dmcole1 - one that speaks to our open science audience and our broader audience of activists, artists, developers, educators, and librarians interested in open data in government and youth civic engagement.
@esylvan Thanks for submitting your proposal and following up with your responses. It sounds like a fascinating session. We have a limited number of travel and accomodation stipends to go around and these are now pretty much all assigned. Do you think you be able to come and run this session without the aid of a stipend?
