Limited Capacity full

Many educators and school leaders have a strained relationship with data and research. For far too many years, data has been hard to access and use, often was focused on the wrong or inadequate measures, or was simply misused. Quite recently, a new era for educational research and data has begun to transform how schools and educators access and use data to help students and tell their own story. In this session, educators and school leaders will be provided real-world examples of the newly emerging tools, approaches, and mindset for leveraging data, research, and visualization tools to support their own unique educational objectives. Using examples culled from global K12 school settings in recent months and years, this session will provide both a framework and examples of best practices for attendees wishing to better leverage research, data, and the latest visualization tools in their own school context. Attendees will actively participate in data gathering, scoring, and reporting through online instruments, classroom drawings, observation rubrics, and will be introduced to a collection of the latest data-visualization tools being used in classrooms around the globe. Through the application of these process and tools, attendees will have the opportunity to more empirically self-evaluate and reflect with others on the complex objectives and relationships inherent in using data to inform 21st teaching and learning. To facilitate this process, attendees will work through exercises individually and in small groups, with whole group discussion and facilitated sharing. By the end of our session, attendees will have a greater enthusiasm and deeper understanding for the opportunities and affordances of leveraging research and data in their classroom/school and deepen their capacity and skills for using simple data visualization tools.
