Data Literacy in The Smart City
Aarhus Public Libraries has been working with children collecting and analyzing data about the sound of Aarhus using micro:bits. The aim is to train the students' data literacy and at the same time have them contributing to a bigger ‘data story’ about the city. Creating awareness around the massive amounts of data that are produced by and around us, as well as inspiring local communities to utilize this data is important, if we want the digitalization of our cities to be not only smart, but also democratic.
