21st Century Teaching and Learning
We are in an exciting time in terms of the knowledge we can all access, and the ways knowledge is being communicated. Our world is filled with data and data visualizations and a new, important goal for our teaching is to help students become data literate, learning to make sense of data in their lives and separate fact from fiction. All teachers can teach with a data perspective, integrating the ideas from data science into their teaching. The aim of a data science approach is not to add new content or standards to your teaching, it is about interacting with your content in a data science way – that is fun, interesting and creative. Students can learn to ask questions that are meaningful to them, to explore and study patterns and to communicate with cool data visualizations. I am co-leading a K-12 data science initiative with Steve Levitt (economist & Freakonomics author) and this session will share ideas and resources for all teachers.
