Using Data in the Classroom Workshop 2005
The 2005 DLESE Data Services Workshop was held April 18-20, 2005 at the Beaver Run Resort and Conference Center in scenic Breckenridge, Colorado. The workshop provided an opportunity for data providers, analysis tool developers, scientists, curriculum developers, and educators to interact with one another in a variety of sessions, all working toward the goal of facilitating the use of data in education.
At the workshop, attendees worked in small teams that include a data provider, data access or analysis tool expert, scientist, curriculum developer, and an educator. Team members worked together to develop an educational module, drawing upon the expertise of individuals in each role on the team. This practical exercise enabled team members to learn from each other about the needs, practices, and expectations of the other groups.
