D4.6.1) Handbook on Open Data in Education: A collaboratively written living web document targeting educational practitioners and the education community at large, describing project learnings around how best to use open data to meet educational needs and use cases, including tips and tricks for ﬁnding data and tools, using data and tools, and other areas as determined during the project.
Open Education Handbook Questions… ● Should it just be about open data in education? ● Who is it for? ● What should it contain? Content? Concepts? Discussion? Casestudies? Deﬁnitions? Relationships ● Who should write it? How should they write it? ● Other handbooks: Open data handbook, data journalism handbook, openGLAM handbook ● What should it look like? How should it be managed? ● What is its future?
So what is open? “A piece of data or content is open if anyone is free to use, reuse, and redistribute it — ` subject only, at most, to the requirement to attribute and/or share-alike.” http://opendeﬁnition.org

What’s a Booksprint A Book Sprint brings together a group to produce a book in 3-5 days. There is no pre-production and the group is guided by a facilitator from zero to published book. There are three important outcomes from Book Sprints: • Producing a book • Sharing knowledge • Team/community building http://www.booksprints.net/
Elements of a Booksprint • • • • • • Importance of real space collaboration and face-to-face working Encouraging discussion and brainstorming Begin with no preconceived ideas about what the book should be All voices are valid – try and avoid domination by individuals You should have ownership of the book Session to be strongly facilitated There are ﬁve main parts of a Book Sprint (Dr D. Berry and M. Dieter): 1. Concept Mapping 2. Structuring 3. Writing 4. Composition 5. Publication

Future Challenges For the handbook Moving away from UK/EU focus Ensuring a universal style to the handbook Adding a glossary to the handbook Further agreement on deﬁnitions and glossary items Backing up ideas with references and links Providing a ﬂow through the handbook while still allowing separate sections to be read in isolation • Identifying the synergies between diﬀerent areas of work. This will require more high-level reﬂection. • Front-end for handbook – diﬀerent audiences • • • • • •
