Our Events for the Data Education in Schools program aims to deliver a wide range of information about data science and digital literacy to teachers. Events will take the form of seminars, live interactive lessons and professional discussions all held online.
We will be offering a range of professional learning discussions around data and digital. Topics will include:
- The National Digital Literacies Framework
- Statistics in every day life – Applications to exam marking and coronavirus data
- Understanding Machine Learning and Artificial Intelligence
- Data & Our Planet, looking at the internet of things
- Elections & Fake news
We hope to develop a range of blog posts reflecting on the discussion each week. Blog posts can be viewed on our News pages
