Week 8: Smart measurement and learning
Welcome to the final week. In the following video, Lorraine draws together all that you’ve learned so far and asks how a city’s smartness can be measured and evaluated. What’s the role of learning in a smart city and what types of education initiative enable this for city leaders, businesses and citizens?
You’ll take the last steps through your smart cities project, reviewing your value proposition and completing the first draft of your Business Model Canvas, which you can develop and refine into the future. There is also a smart cities game for you to play, to pit your knowledge against the computer.
By the end of this week, you should be able to:
- explore how the smartness of a city can be measured and evaluated
- discuss the role of education and learning in smart cities
- summarise some key opportunities and challenges for a city becoming smart
