Create your Own Class Database - Introduction to the Idea of Databases
Nowadays, we are frequently confronted with the terms data & information. But what is meant by these terms? And how can databases help us to organize our chaos?
Databases – What's that?
Based on social networks like Facebook or SchülerVZ we will create a database for your class/group. At first only as a model for you to get an idea of what it looks like and afterwards we will begin with designing the real database.
You will get to know the program LibreOffice-Base (OpenSource at https://de.libreoffice.org/download/libreoffice-still/) and thus easily realize the use of databases and why they are secretly utilized all around us.
By using the prepared database, you can immediately - without having to type that much - try to find out what is meant by operating on databases versteht. We promise that there won't be any spilled blood!
The controversial topic of responsibly handling data is not the core topic of this module but it is discussed as well.
