About this Project
Using Data in the Classroom is a site that provides information and discussion for educators and resource developers interested in effective teaching methods and pedagogical approaches for using data in the classroom. The site contains discussions of pedagogic issues, links to sources of on-line data that can be used for education, examples of exercises that educators have developed, and scenarios that describe future uses for data in the classroom.
This site is community-driven. We encourage users to contribute in any of the following areas. Contributions will be periodically reviewed and incorporated into the site as appropriate.
- increase the current resource user and contributor base to include greater numbers of K-12, informal, and college educators and students,
- diversify the DLESE user and contributor base to include rich and robust representation of ethnic, cultural, and differently-abled groups,
- improve the ability of users and contributors to easily find, adapt, and effectively use high quality digital resources in their classrooms, laboratories, and communities, and
- demonstrate how DLESE can support community activity addressing issues in geoscience education.
