Data Literacy 101: Data in Schools

Data Literacy 101: Data in Schools

Free webinar

About this session:

With the rise of data creation, commercialization, insecurity, and consumption, it’s important that school and academic libraries are responding to these trends in meaningful ways. This presentation aims to offer a holistic framework for library-led data literacy practices that can work in a school setting by engaging with the OLA’s Student Inquiry Process and the Problem, Plan, Data, Analysis, Conclusion (PPDAC) Model from statistical methodology. A library-led data literacy program for schools would identify and define data literacy, address the data literacy needs of the staff, faculty and students, use evidence from successfully integrated data literacy programs, understand the application of data literacy beyond the school, and inform and reform the tools and models that are supporting data literacy programs. This framework positions library-led data literacy programs in school and academic institutions as an integrated, hands-on, and inquiry-based practice that library professionals can use and adapt to their library to support an overall library-led literacy program.

Participants will:

  • Understand how data literacy can be implemented in a school setting;


  • Have exposure to a flexible and holistic data literacy framework;


  • Gain hands-on tips and tricks at each stage of the framework
