Data Science in Elementary School

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

The ability to process information in an analytical way is becoming increasingly important, and educators are encouraged or expected to incorporate more coding and data analytics into their teaching. Callysto is a free online platform designed for students in Grade 5 and up. It is capable of engaging data visualizations, big data processing, coding, and text formatting.Teachers will be introduced to the federally-funded Callysto platform, and will be able to explore Python-based modules developed for teaching outcomes in elementary science, math, and social studies. We will talk about how to incorporate these into your classroom, and help you create or edit modules for other outcomes if you are interested.
