CELDA 2021: Computational techniques for data science applied to broaden the knowledge between citizen science and education

This paper describes a preliminary study of how computational methods allow us to know more about citizen science and its connection with education. Citizen science is a practice involving a general public in scientific tasks and generating knowledge and scientific results. Previous studies have shown that the education sector can take benefit of the knowledge and activities organized or resources generated in CS projects. Previous studies have shown that the education sector can take advantage of the knowledge and activities organized in CS projects. In this papers, we analyze three citizen science platforms (Eu.Citizen science platform, Observatorio de la ciencia ciudadana and Oficina de la ciència ciutadana) with computational analytics techniques to provide initial insights of how educators can take benefit of the analysis of large amounts of data from CS. Finally, different visualizations and dashboards have been developed as illustrative examples of tools to support educators and learners. These tools provide information about citizen science projects, an overview of scientific vocabulary, access to validated resources and examples of technology used in scientific inquiry that can be used with educational purposes.

 

EC-TEL 2021: Citizen Science, Data Science and Education: how to support teacher’s inspiration during the learning activities design with Technology Enhance Learning

This research will investigate the potential that Citizen Science (CS) projects data has in a formal educational context to learn. CS involves citizens in scientific research generating knowledge and scientific results. Citizens participate in CS projects conducting many activities developing skills, interest in science or scientific literacy. These projects share their information in online repositories also called CS platforms to inform citizens about the aim of the project, their advances on research or how to take part in it. Although the connection between CS and education has been explored, remains to be understood and must be made more explicit. Web scraping and data mining methods have the potential to obtain CS projects data available online and analyze it to extract conclusions. The main aim of this research is to understand how to analyze and visualize CS data in a technology enhanced learning (TEL) tool to support educators during the learning design of educational activities. It is also intended to improve scientific knowledge and to bring official science closer to educational environments.
