Learning Python and Data Science with Adelphi’s NYC Schools Open Data Portal
An introduction to data science with NYC Schools Open Data.
Data can be a crucial tool for understanding and managing our schools, and its analysis and interpretation have powerful consequences. The mission of Adelphi University’s NYC Schools Open Data Portal is to make open public school data in New York available to everyone interested in improving our schools, regardless of their technical background or familiarity with data analysis.
To broaden the reach of this open data, we have two goals:
- help more people acquire the technical skills to effectively work with the data
- lowering the technical requirements to use the data
In this hands-on session, we will discuss the variety of open data available regarding schools, demonstrate the types of questions this data can help us explore, and help you get started writing your own simple (or complex) programs to analyze, visualize, and map this data.
