“A Scuola di OpenCoesione” (ASOC) [Open Cohesion School] is an innovative, interdisciplinary educational project addressed to all Italian high schools, stemming from an agreement signed in June 2013 between the MIUR and the Department for Development and Economic Cohesion.
The goal of the program is to introduce in Italian schools notions like “Open Data”, “Data Journalism”, “Civic Monitoring”, and “Policy of Cohesion”.
ASOC indeed supports the principle of informed citizenship by promoting activities of civic monitoring of public funding and using information and communication technologies like open data published on the portal OpenCoesione.
PUSH has been chosen to take part to the network “Rete di Amici ASOC”, which gathers the associations selected with the call for application launched by “Amici di ASOC” that will work alongside the schools on their topic they have chosen.
Today PUSH will begin working together with the students of I.I.S.S. Francesco Ferrara. The topic selected is: Tourism and Cultural Goods. It will be a total of five meetings of three hours each, including the development of a project with the educational and technical activities connected to it.
Today’s session is devoted to an in-depth analysis of the chosen topic and in the explanation of the first steps one has to take to collect information and data to foster the project.
