What do you really want to know? Open Sprockler training

The first Sprockler open training has taken place. On the 23rd of March, about 15 Sprockler enthusiasts got together for a whole day of Sprockler training.

The programme contained the following elements:

  • Philosophy: what is Sprockler and why does it exist?
  • Designer: How do you design an inquiry that asks for what you really want to know?
  • Collector: How do you collect valuable stories and data?
  • Visualizer: How do you visualize and learn from stories and data?

Participants learned more about the why behind the three modules (Designer, Collector & Visualizer) and tried out the software themselves. There was also space to experiment with their own inquiries and think of situations where Sprockler could be a useful tool for them.

Because of recent controversy over privacy around the world, following the news about Facebook data sharing, some more explanation about how Sprockler handles its data was also provided.
