(an interesting update from a project we met at the beginning of our research, from coordinator Prof. Tomasi)
Last week we presented the DiDIY project, its task, and what we are currently doing, at the Paris Open Source Summit, in the fossA (Free/Open Source Software in Academia) sub-event. More in detail, we briefly introduced, through these slides:
Febryary 3rd, 2016, that is the day before our first 2016 Project Meeting was a very busy day. We had four different meetings with different groups and organizations who, for one reason or another, may have some interest in greater diffusion of Digital DIY.
A general introduction to the DiDIY project, that answering the H2020 call for a "Human centric digital age", has been designed to be highly interdisciplinary and will look at organization and work, but also training and research, ethics, legal aspects such as the protection of intellectual property and - not least - creativity.
Many believe that participating in a European project is a dull and tiresome experience. To the contrary, a European project such as DiDIY is a very rare and stimulating occasion to see a revolution unfolding before the eyes of researchers, who have the opportunity to witness, and share with you, how DiDIY is reshaping education in real life, involving teachers, students, parents, and school principals, their needs, hopes, failures and aspirations.
Interesting results were presented in the two deliverables, that were submitted yesterday (June 30): D4.1, “Definition of the research space and agents” and D4.2 “Complementing background knowledge”.
