It is quite well established that the knowledge acquisition can be significantly improved by associating formal classes with Internet browsing, collaborative tasks and visiting new spaces. However, it is not an easy task to identify a community needs in order to put in place new educational services and resources. The new digital processes have new focus: the citizen empowerment and autonomous development of collaborative projects of services in the domains of the city, different information sources join to create knowledge. The objective of this work is to identify needs and to specify new services in the educational domain by means of the integration of statistical and social development data into an IoT architecture. IoT offers new services to find solutions to the needs of large cities. The proposal is validated by an use case in which an educational ecosystem is created integrating educational, cultural (museums, theaters) institutions along entertainment spaces (parks) where the activities are mediated by creative currencies.
