Dear All

A provisional programme 
<http://linkedup-project.eu/files/2014/03/MIM_Programme.pdf> is now 
available for the Making it Matter: Supporting education in the 
developing world through open and linked data, a free one-day workshop 
organised by the LinkedUp Project and the Commonwealth of Learning in 
London, UK on Friday 16th May, 2014.
http://linkedup-project.eu/making-it-matter-workshop/ 
<http://education.okfn.org/making-it-matter/>

Speakers include Venkataraman Balaji (Director, Technology & Knowledge 
Management, Commonwealth of Learning), Tom Salmon (Teacher and open 
development researcher), Stefan Dietze (LinkedUp Project) and Christophe 
Gueret (DANS NL and WorldWide Semantic Web). There are also a series of 
interactive breakout sessions.

The aim of the workshop is to bring together software developers, 
educators and individuals from the development community to see how they 
can work together by using open and linked data to support education in 
the developing world.

A limited number of spaces 
<http://www.eventbrite.co.uk/e/making-it-matter-supporting-education-in-the-developing-world-through-open-and-linked-data-tickets-8832158223> 
are still available for the workshop.

We have also now set up a form so people can register 
<https://docs.google.com/a/okfn.org/forms/d/1r7y2MJZ_OYzdfWCv7yhDAPN49LR69UmnE5ekM3Kn_zU/viewform> 
if they are interested in remote participation on the day. Talks will be 
streamed and there will be opportunities to participate online in 
break-out sessions.

Looking forward to meeting you at the Making it Matter Workshop!

Thanks

Marieke
