Data of Our Lives: Hook & Engage Students

Mar 8, 2022

3:00pm – 4:30pm CT

Why do students struggle with data? Don’t they know data are fun? Why not imbed real-time data as our instructional hook? We will preview strategies for finding high quality datasets, and discuss different approaches of building data skills by integrating real-time data into teaching. There is an explosion of data all around us that we could use to address data skills currently in math and revised science standards. Join us to unpack “Analyzing & Interpreting Data” to support classroom content.
