Data Literacy in the Real World: Conversations & Case StudiesEdited by Kristin Fontichiaro, Amy Lennex, Tyler Hoff, Kelly Hovinga and Jo Angela Oehrli
Knowing how to recognize the role data plays in our lives is critical to navigating today’s complex world. In this volume, you’ll find two kinds of professional development tools to support that growth. Part I contains pre-made professional development via links to webinars from the 2016 and 2017 4T Virtual Conference on Data Literacy, along with discussion questions and activities that can animate conversations around data in your school. Part II explores data “in the wild” with case studies pulled from the headlines, along with provocative discussion questions, professionals and students alike can explore multiple perspectives at play with Big Data, data privacy, personal data management, ethical data use, and citizen science.
