Data and Charts and Graphs, Oh My! Let Google Tools Be Your Guide

February 4, 2020 ♦ 7:00pm - 8:30pm ET

Session Description: Humans respond to and process visual data better than any other type of data. Whether students are learning to collect, organize, graph, or interpret data, this webinar offers proven tools and strategies that assist learners in developing and applying those skills. Together we will explore and plan for the use of forms to collect data, web resources to access data, spreadsheets to manipulate and graph data, and Google MyMaps to visualize data. Students from beginner to advanced can use these tools to visualize and connect math, science, and social studies concepts to concrete, real-world applications. Let's get students excited about learning and help them incorporate complex data literacy into their world view. This session is appropriate for teachers at all technology levels.

As a result of this session teachers will:

  1. Understand how to use data visualization in the classroom;
  2. Explore digital tools that will assist students with data visualization projects; and
  3. Plan for the use of data visualization in the classroom.
