A Scuola di OpenCoesione - OGP Regional Meeting 2014, Dublin

  1. 1. - Open Data, Data Journalism, Civic Monitoring and Cohesion Policy in Italian Schools - OpenCoesione School Damien Lanfrey Dublin Castle, Open Government Partnership Regional Meeting, 9 May 2014 Saturday, August 2, 14
  2. 2. Where it started: OpenCoesione OpenCoesione www.opencoesione.gov.it The Italian open data portal for Cohesion Policy funds’ usage. ‣Contains data about 100B of public spending (2007-2013, soon 2014-2020) ‣Each of the over 700,000 projects funded has its folder, over 90 variables downloadable ‣Data sortable by project, by who funds it ‣Contains dynamic map views + ad hoc indicators about territorial development (DPS- ISTAT data) ‣Recognized as one of EU’s OpenGov best practices Saturday, August 2, 14
  3. 3. OC: from data platform to ecosystem In the past year, OpenCoesione wasn’t happy with only delivering the largest and more detailed open data platform on public spending in Europe More was to be done, bearing in mind open data’s biggest shortcoming: lack of actual use from citizens and stakeholders Open Data alone, in fact, rarely generates engagement. It needs additional tools and mechanism. It needs boundary work with the kind of disciplinary“worlds” able to morph it from data platform to engagement ecosystem (open data for engagement) Saturday, August 2, 14
  4. 4. OC: from data platform to ecosystem A civic-public partnership, Monithon is not just a new platform: it is a format for engaging citizens: “Monithoring Marathons” Based on Ushahidi code, allows every citizen (or group of) to produce, customize and publish monithoring reports about OpenCoesione-hosted projects OpenCoesione School: engaging the largest and most precious constituency of all, school students (age 14-18), through project-based education Saturday, August 2, 14
  5. 5. OC: from data platform to ecosystem A civic-public partnership, Monithon is not just a new platform: it is a format for engaging citizens: “Monithoring Marathons” Based on Ushahidi code, allows every citizen (or group of) to produce, customize and publish monithoring reports about OpenCoesione-hosted projects OpenCoesione School: engaging the largest and most precious constituency of all, school students (age 14-18), through project-based education Saturday, August 2, 14
  6. 6. OpenCoesione School: what is it Project-based edu www.ascuoladiopencoesione.it ‣Each classroom is tutored towards developing a data journalism project on data about one or more OpenCoesione projects (+other data) and their impact (or lack of) in their neighborhood or local area ‣Each course involves 6 modules (3 hours each, though its more “steps” like a MOOC): 1. designing 2. analyzing 3. deepening (giving context) 4. exploring (monithon) 5. storytelling 6. engaging (presenting results) ‣ 1 is live, 2 is workshop-based, 3 is online, 4 is on the field, 5 is online, 6 is on the field, in front of institutions and the community ‣Currently, 7 schools are piloting the project.They will act as hubs in the next schoolyear Saturday, August 2, 14
  7. 7. ASOC:The lesson workflow Setting the goals In Lesson 1, classes form 2-3 groups (7-10 people each group, different roles) Roles inspired by OKFN “Data Expedition” model - Project Manager - Storyteller - Blogger Social Media & PR - Head of Research - Analyst - Coder - Designer Saturday, August 2, 14
  8. 8. ASOC:The lesson workflow Each Lesson, 2-3 main steps Each step, various formats - videos - slides - live searches - handouts - collaborative docs Each step, various activities - watching short videos or tutorial (max 5 mins) - call-in-action for activities (15-30 mins) - pitching the results (5 mins) Saturday, August 2, 14
  9. 9. ASOC:The lesson workflow After the last step, homeworks are assigned, together with the teacher (downloadable from lesson page) homeworks still in group, either after class at school (dedicated time) or at home or in the field Saturday, August 2, 14
  10. 10. ASOC:The contents (6) ENGAGING (1) DESIGNING Contents: group formation, rules of the game, what is public policy, what is cohesion policy, what is civic monitoring, what is open data.

  19. 19. LA SPERIMENTAZIONE Come è andata ? Geografia Impatta, ma non condiziona. Grande energia a Bari per il progetto, prevedibile minore interesse aTrento per minori dati/issues. Lavorare su temi a forte ricaduta locale è fondamentale, in alcuni casi l’unica strategia possibile. Roma il contesto più difficile su cui lavorare per combinazione tipologia di classe-contesto locale-tema. Processo / Interazioni Interazioni in classe soddisfacenti anche diminuendo progressivamente presenza e supporto diretto dei formatori. Interazioni oltre la classe da rafforzare attraverso indicazioni più strutturate, compiti coinvolgenti e un rapporto più ravvicinato con i docenti. Modello “data expedition” (2h per produrre proposta progettuale a partire dai dati) soddisfacente, così come divisione in gruppi. Divisione degli studenti in ruoli per ogni gruppo utile e da rafforzare. Momento “pitch” in classe utile e coinvolgente. Tipologia di scuola / classe Differenza di età (es. Roma) ha un impatto, maggiori difficoltà a gestire il processo con i più giovani. Licei meno “progettuali” e più riflessivi. Dimensione classe ha impatto, ma è mitigato dalla divisione in gruppi (da 7-9 studenti). Dotazione tecnologica e aule sufficiente per la lezione, utile aver verificato per poter specificare requisiti delle classi che in futuro parteciperanno. Configurazioni differenti ma non decisive. Didattica Iteratività nello sviluppo dei contenuti della prima lezione, presenza fisica fondamentale per cogliere diversi aspetti. Politiche di coesione non semplici da digerire. Inefficacia di materiali “evocativi” (slide con musica), privilegiare contenuti pragramatici (esempi + lessons-learned), brevi (4-5 min), esercizi pratici e sostenere il processo con contenuti guida (es. slide stampabili della data expedition). Compiti a casa in fase di testing. Saturday, August 2, 14
  20. 20. FLUSSO DEL PROGETTO Fase Pilota: Primo Quadrimestre ANNO SCOLASTICO 2014/2015 - ASOC in tutte le scuole Nuovi partner + Nuovi format + Competizione nazionale - Prossimi passi - Gennaio: -Team ASOC: completamento di tutti materiali didattici + coordinamento pillole “guest star” - PM inizia incontri per fase 2 (MIUR, possibili partner, reti civiche) - Conclusione ciclo prime lezioni in ogni scuola, raccolta e verifica homework - Rafforzamento materiali “guida” e formazione docenti - Azioni di comunicazione e creazione community “amici di ASOC” - Live altre sezioni del sito web (blog scuole, forum) Febbraio: - Ciclo intenso di lezioni online in ogni scuola - Cristallizzazione aspetti fase 2 (modalità di diffusione, premio, partner, etc.) - Rafforzamento community “amici di ASOC” - Guida ASOC diventa definitiva - ...

  21. 21. MODELLI DI SCALABILITÀ MODELLO MOOC + FORMAZIONE DIFFUSA Corso online; progettualità e facilitazione in classe seguita da docenti, peers (studenti con esperienza) e formatori individuati di volta in volta (es. lista “amici di ASOC”) dalla scuola, con il coordinamento di team ASOC MODELLO MOOC + RETI TERRITORIALI Corso online; progettualità e facilitazione in classe supportata dalla comunità locale esterna alla scuola (partenariato dinamico team ASOC - reti esterne) MODELLO MOOC IN CLASSE Corso online che gli studenti possono fruire singolarmente, in gruppo “indipendente” o in classe. Progettualità in classe seguita dai soli docenti (supportata da docenti e studenti peer delle scuole già formate). In tutti é 3 i modelli sarà fondamentale puntare sulla formazione dei docenti delle classi partecipanti e sul raccordo con la comunità locale. I modelli, si differenziano in particolare per complessità di gestione e costo. Ibridazione dei modelli ovviamente possibile. - 3 Prospettive (non necessariamente alternative) di evoluzione dopo Febbraio 2014 - Saturday, August 2, 14
