  • Waarde: is 540m hemelsbreed of loopafstand; of leerlingen dit jaar of gemiddeld? <br />
  • mogelijkheden, data, kansen worden niet benut. <br />
  • dit is de stad met onze school <br />
  • we weten van alles over de stad en objecten in de stad, maar het is lastig om alleen voor de school in de data de informatie te vinden <br />
  • het zou mooi zijn als er koppelingen zijn tussen datasets, dan kun je makkelijk terugvinden dat datasets beide informatie hebben over de school (of ander object) <br />

  • Design Rules for Smarter Cities • Your citizens know more than you. • Prototype early and fast, engage the stakeholders, iterate quickly and be prepared to start all over. • Embrace self-organisation and civic initiative, but help to make the results sustainable and scalable. • Know what you are talking about in the face of technology. Never rely on consultants that will sell you more consultancy, not solutions. • Have binding decisions made at the lowest level possible and actively preach self-governance. • Favour loosely coupled, smaller systems over monoliths and mastodons, and use peer-defined standards to glue together the parts. Small systems tend to fail sometimes; large systems fail for sure. • To raise and deserve trust, build systems based on data reciprocity and transparency. • Reuse existing parts and design your additions for reuse, adding to the public domain and thereby strengthening its capacity to act and learn.
