Berg: Schooloscope

Published on .

Most Popular

Berg London, through funding by the Channel 4 innovation fund 4iP, created Schooloscope to keep tabs on the performance of London schools. The site uses a "journalism robot" to process public data on about 20,000 state schools in England. Schools are represented by smiling, or not-so-happy faces, each of which can be clicked on to see more detailed data explaining their current "demeanor."

Berg is still working out the site's kinks and adding more functionality, and over the next six months will be working on developing and commercializing the site.
