Collaborative Research: Designing the Impact Studio — Dynamic Visualizations in the Write4Change Networked Community

10/1/16-9/30/18 PIs: Glynda Hull, University of California-Berkeley (Award Details) Amy Stornaiuolo, University of Pennsylvania (Award Details) The amount and variety of information generated and shared online requires young people to be adept at effectively producing, analyzing, assessing, using, visualizing, and circulating data. They must be data literate. This project investigates how adolescents develop data literacy […]

NetStat: EAGER: A Representation and Communication Infrastructure for Classroom Collaboration in Data Modeling and Statistics

PI: Corey Brady Vanderbilt University Award Details This project aims to enhance collaborative and participatory learning in classrooms, an important and enduring theme across both research and practice. The project will use design-based research to build and study NetStat, a classroom network system for supporting collaborative activities in data modeling and statistics. This project’s approach […]

DIP: Data Science Games – Student Immersion in Data Science Using Games for Learning in the Common Online Data Analysis Platform

PIs: William Finzer, Timothy Erickson, Frieda Reichsman, Michelle Wilkerson-Jerde Concord Consortium Award Details This project refines and studies technology for ‘data science games’: essentially, a game is embedded in a data analysis environment, in which the game can only be ‘won’ by doing data modeling. Research will examine how students learn to analyze and model […]
