Data Sharing for Good

On Sunday, I'm presenting a session at the ASCD annual conference on using data in the classroom. Along the way, we'll take a tour of chart selection for a data set, some best practices for data viz, and tools for moving beyond "admiring the data." Materials for the session, along with other sundry data viz resources are here.

I've tried to pull from a variety of sources...a few favourite quotes sprinkled in, like this one:

We'll play a little game with the When Excel Gives You Lemons data. You can play, too, by clicking here to choose a bachelor from the three below. (Turn your speakers up for the full effect.)

We'll explore a few different kinds of stories...and the problem with pie charts.

A detour to Sesame Street will help us think about pre-attentive attributes.

So, if you're in Los Angeles this weekend, stop by and learn with us. If you have ideas and resources to share, leave them in the comments.
