Open Data are published to let interested stakeholders exploit data and create value out of them, but limited technical skills are a crucial barrier. To overcome this limitation, learners are invited to develop data and information literacy according to 21st-century skills and become aware of open data sources and what they can do with the data.
In this seminar, we present a systematic literature review of initiatives to let K-12 learners familiarise themselves with Open Data. This review encompasses a total of 21 papers, organised in taxonomies according to the used data format, the adopted approach, and the expected learning outcome. We then compare the included initiatives and discuss challenges that should be overcome to advance the dialogue around Open Data at school.
