Collecting, Organizing and Visualizing Data

Data is such an important part of our lives. Data is collected every day, whether it pertains to school work or during our personal lives. It has become important that our students have an understanding of how they can work with data. In this workshop, participants will gather a skillset on how data can be collected, how it can be arranged after the data has been collected, as well as how the data should be visualized for others. 

This workshop will be geared towards 6-12 grade level administrators & educators.

Week 1: COLLECTING DATA  

We will explore how data can be collected through use of Google Forms and Google Sheets. Overview of how forms can be created will be given as well as demonstration of advanced features to take forms to the next level.  

Monday, September 27, 2021 4:15 – 5:45 pm – Required Google Meet 

Self Paced Learning – 1 additional hour 

Week 2: ANALYZE DATA 

Once the data has been collected, what exactly do you do with that data? We will explore how Google Forms, Google Sheets, and Desmos can be used to help interpret the data that has been collected. 

Monday, October 4, 2021 4:15 – 5:45 pm – Required Google Meet

Week 3: VISUALIZE DATA 

You have analyzed the data. Now it is time to figure out how you are going to share out that data with others. Does it make sense to share data via an infographic or does it make sense to share out via Google Data Studio? We will explore these two options together.
