Project partners have built the online mapping software adapted to the needs of their territories and have carried on with identifying learning opportunities for building interactive mapping resource. The main focus of interactive maps is learning opportunities. This is due to the needs analysis completed with young people who emphasised that they are interested to get information about the dynamic opportunities which they can take part in and not the static information about learning spaces.
Each partner had organised various research activities with young people in their cities/regions in order to identify the best ways they learned online, what on-line spaces they use for learning and why to map learning opportunities in their territories and to make first testing of the maps. During the research and implementation phase, partners managed to identify and promote more than 1550 learning opportunities.
Interactive maps of each territory can be found here:
By the end of the project, more than 15 other territories started using interactive maps to map and promote learning opportunities in their cities and regions. Should you want your city or region to become a partner, contact us.
Examples of research tools and activities are available in the Cities of Learning StarterKit.
The client-side software of interactive maps is available for downloads from Connected Spaces at GitHub. Contact Badgecraft for API integration.
