There are many Web Observatories already in existence even if they don’t specifically use this term) and our ambition is to enable sharing and re-use of the data, tools and experience locked up in these standalone systems.

Web Observatories

We believe there is an opportunity to enable a world-wide web of Observatories underpinned by common standards of discovery, sharing and interoperation. Below you will see a few of the Observatories that we work with as part of the Web Science Trust – please contact us if you are interested in building your own web observatory, sharing an existing system or click here simply to find out more.

New topics added to study’s data linkage portfolio – Understanding Society. Researchers can now use the study’s linked data to explore the connection between household characteristics and events and children’s school records including exam results, absence and exclusion histories.

New topics added to study’s data linkage portfolio – Understanding Society

The English National Pupil Database, which has been recording children’s attainment from as early as 1996, has been linked to Understanding Society. New topics have been added to the linked education records that were first released in February 2015 and can be accessed with the main Understanding Society data set from the UK Data Service under the Secure Access License. Not used our data before? Read our Getting Started guide What new records have been linked? UK Data Service. One of the large databases that have been converted into Linked Data by the team is Edubase, DCSFs database of all the schools.

This is a large database (about 6 million triples) and a little too big to download, especially if you only want a small amount of the information that Edubase contains (like, say, just the schools in Norfolk), rather than the whole database. We have made Edubase available in RDF (our thanks to Stewart Williams, Dave Reynolds and Brian McBride of Hewlett Packard), and you can query it using SPARQL by making requests to: To help developers use SPARQL, Leigh has kindly created a number of example SPARQL queries of the Edubase data. To begin with you may find it easier to adapt some of these queries, than start creating your own from scratch. The results are returned using the SPARQL XML results format. Try some of these queries out for yourself on the Education SPARQL endpoint. Which schools in the BANES area have a nursery? LIS Cross-National Data Center in Luxembourg.

PISA - OECD. Does it matter how much time students spend on line outside of school?


PISA data confirm a troubling relationship between the time teenagers spend on line outside of school and their sense of belonging at school. Results clearly indicate that extreme Internet users (those who spend six or more hours per day on line during weekdays) are twice as likely as moderate Internet users (those who spend between one and two hours per day on line) to report that they feel lonely at school (14% compared to 7%). Extreme Internet users are also particularly at risk of being less engaged with school and of scoring below their peers in the PISA assessment of mathematics.

While these findings cannot prove cause and effect, they suggest that avoiding excess, when it comes to using technology, is important not just for students’ leisure time, but also for how effective school systems are in promoting students’ learning.
