"Knowing how to recognize the role data plays in our lives is critical to navigating today's complex world. We want to our high school students to graduate being able to understand and make conscious choices about the ways in which they approach data. Data literacy--the ability to 'read' and 'write' effectively with data--is critical to success in the 21st century. Educators and librarians can help students become more data savvy once they are more savvy with it themselves. In this volume, you'll find two kinds of professional development tools to support that growth. Part I contains pre-made professional development via links to webinars from the 2016 and 2017 4T Virtual Conference on Data Literacy, along with discussion questions and activities that can animate conversations around data in your school. Part II explores data 'in the wild' with case studies pulled from the headlines, along with provocative discussion questions, professionals and students alike can explore multiple perspectives at play with big data, data privacy, personal data management, ethical data use, and citizen science."--Provided by publisher
