Summary

#dataviz

A strong voice alone is sometimes not enough to elicit social change. In the digital age of (mis)information, it is hard to know what needs to change and to what extent this change must happen. Recently, data visualizations have emerged as an engaging way to help the public synthesize complex quantitative data on various issues. This session is a hands-on workshop inspired by a classroom project where students explored the theory of a "digital divide" within NYC using Tableau. After creating simple data visualizations, participants will create an infographic with their findings and reflect on the learning process and how to integrate ethics and technology into social justice education.
