  • From data cultivation to data blossom, the Agricultural Data platform is an end-to-end modular solution that can transform data into meaningful services. The agricultural data are harvested from diverse sources and after they enrichment are published through a set of web services to external systems. The enrichment of data includes:
    improvement of data descriptions
    annotation of data with ontologies
    translation of data descriptions
    The enrichment of the data allows the development of high quality services for specific agricultural communities.
    Publishing is responsible for the exposure of agricultural data in a form that can be used a) for the development of data discovery services b) authoring services and c) analytics dashboards to track and study how the agricultural data are used.

    10. 10. What can museums learn from this? “Education must be connected to real life; it cannot be a parallel universe. Young people want to use digital technology in every aspect of life.” Neelie Kroes, Commission Vice-President Brussels, 25 Sept 2013 Museums have the opportunity to join the conversation taking place about the future of education and think beyond their collections and the physical walls of the museum. 10th EdReNe Conference 6 - 7 Nov 2013, Brussels
    11. 11. Microsites for museums •designed, developed and deployed to help museums bring collections to the fingertips of their users by supporting discovery of items of interest from museum’s digital collections •opens museum’s collections to a worldwide audience of users •enriches museum’s collections with relevant content hosted by other museums around the world – AK Data Platform currently hosts a cultural collection of >7000 digital resources on botany, zoology, mineralogy etc. •integrated in the existing Web site of a museum or developed as a brand new and independent service •based on the Data Platform which can be adapted to work with museums’ own collection management system, as well as global infrastructures like GBIF (Global Biodiversity Information Facility). 10th EdReNe Conference 6 - 7 Nov 2013, Brussels

    17. 17. What is an Educational pathway? •bridging classroom and museum learning •a learning experience embedded in a context that allows the preparation of the learner before the visit and follow-up activities for the exploitation of the learning outcomes •ensuring the maximum possible proximity between the curriculum and teaching methods on the one hand, and the learning environment •integrating technology and OER in the learning process 10th EdReNe Conference 6 - 7 Nov 2013, Brussels
