What's Next for the 4T Conferences?

What's Next for the Data Literacy Team?

  • Blog: We'll continue our weekly blog, where we share our thinking about data, including current events, examples, links to other resources, and more.

  • Professional Development Packages: We'll package the archived webinars with lists of discussion questions so that district leaders and professional learning communities can view the recordings and build local conversations and plans around them.

  • We'll polish up our chapters on this year's themes on data visualization, data comprehension, and data in arguments and publish them online.

  • We'll send a follow-up survey this fall and hope you'll help us learn how you are using conference ideas in your practice.

  • We'll work on new themes (big data with a lens on citizen science, ethical data use, and personal data management) throughout the next school year, creating new PD materials, another virtual conference, and more packaged PD materials.

  • Program evaluator Melissa Johnston will review all the data you've shared with us and analyze it for themes so we can further fuel both practitioner and researcher efforts.

  • In Summer 2017, we'll host another free, virtual conference.

  • By Spring 2017, we'll publish more chapters and PD materials.

We hope you'll continue to be in touch with us as your needs and aha moments pop up.
