Within my own work, I continue to raise conversations about equity. How will students and teachers be empowered by the data we collect and review? How do we provide opportunity for marginalized voices to be heard? How do we elevate their needs and concerns?

I am starting to collect resources around both equity in data visualization. Here are a few that you might be interested in, too:

In other news, I have been working on a little behind the scenes cleanup on this site. I've refreshed the information on the various pages, as well as the front page side bar. I also recently purged my Delicious site, deleting dead or irrelevant links and reorganizing the remaining ones.

I'm heading to the Tapestry Conference and Eyeo Festival this year. I am feeling the need to stretch and grow beyond the field of education. I do my best to connect with others in a digital space to learn about how they are using data, but I would like to do some in-person networking, as well. Will any other readers be at either of these events?
