Collecting data allows the KEYSPOT network to tell our story and to measure our collective impact. According to Technical.ly Philly, it’s “the numbers that make KEYSPOT a leader in digital inclusion.” In case you missed it at the recent Technology Learning Collaborative conference, here’s a rundown on the network data from Fiscal Year 2015, aka July 1, 2014 through June 30, 2015. Where noted, some updates were included about data from July 1st through September 30th.
#1: Where are people accessing KEYSPOTS? We saw 133,258 adult and youth visits to the labs in Fiscal Year 2015, with an additional 23,382 visits from July-September 2015.
#2: Who is visiting the KEYSPOTS? We know that KEYSPOTS serve diverse populations and have an expansive array of programs and services. In Fiscal Year 2015, the 19 Parks and Rec KEYSPOTS saw far more youth visits as opposed to the Free Library and non-profit sites. This is probably due to the Rec Centers being used by youth for afterschool and summer camp.
#3: When are KEYSPOTS open? Each KEYSPOT location is required to remain open at least 15 hours a week. Some locations are open longer, such as Dixon House in South Philly, which has leveraged a partnership with students at Pierce College to stay open for more than 30 hours a week. In total, 23 of the 50 sites stayed open more than 15 hours for at least one quarter of Fiscal Year 2015.
