Tanya Taylor's curator insight, May 27, 2017 7:08 AM

Today's students learn through visuals as evidenced by their almost obsessive use of Instagram, Snapchat, and Facebook, as well as streamed movies and TV series.  In a 21st century classroom teachers need to provide students with similar visual platforms to spark creativity and engage higher order thinking.

3 Ways To Use Data In The Classroom | Edudemic

3 Ways To Use Data In The Classroom | Edudemic | Teaching history & geography | Scoop.it

The phrase “using data to drive instruction” is showing up everywhere in education circles lately. Particularly with the incorporation of the Common Core State Standards, and new standardized tests and teacher evaluation systems, the way that teachers use data is becoming more and more important. But what exactly does it look like in the classroom? And how can technology help make the process more manageable?

Kirsten Macaulay's curator insight, January 23, 2014 6:29 AM

Overall, there is not one “right” way to use data in the classroom. Using technology makes the process quicker and more effective, and allows teachers to adjust their instruction to meet student needs or provide interventions. Since I starting focusing on using data in the classroom, I have seen the positive impact it can have student learning. Clearly, there are many other ways to use data, but formative assessment is a good place to start.

Louise Robinson-Lay's curator insight, January 23, 2014 2:36 PM

Looking at different types of dat a is crucial. It is important to widen our understanding of what data is and how we can collect and use it.
