“Data literacy. Skills for an extended digital citizenship” is an initiative of the Center for Technology and Society Studies (CETyS), of the University of San Andrés (UdeSA) in Buenos Aires, Argentina.
The initiative was selected in 2019 by the Education Sector Fund, from the Ceibal Foundation and the National Agency for Research and Innovation (ANII), in its “Digital Inclusion: Education with New Horizons” modality with the support of the International Development Research Center (IDRC) of Canada. The project was selected within the framework of a funding for research in the field of teaching supported by digital technologies.
Why This Project?
The project is framed in a path of research and study of Digital Citizenship on curricular programs that aim at training students and teachers in open data.
Data literacy appears as a dimension of digital citizenship in several researches. In this framework, the open data value lies in the fact that these are key components in the development of “transversal skills, which have been defined by UNESCO (2015) as critical and innovative thinking skills, interpersonal skills, intrapersonal skills, and global citizenship.”
