How can I access sessions?
Links have been posted to the conference's schedule page, where you'll find an abridged schedule at the top, followed by a link to a document with extended session descriptions. We ask that you not sign into a room until 15 minutes prior to a session.
What can I do between now and the conference?
- Add our project blog to your RSS reader. Weekly, we share articles and ideas that grab our team's attention as we delve deeper into time-efficient, high-impact data literacy strategies for high school educators.
- If you are registered with the Michigan Department of Education, check out the conference's SCECH page and learn more about how to get SCECH credits.
- Read School Library Journal's profile of the conference.
- Test your computer, tablet, or mobile device to make sure it is compatible with our presentation platform, Blackboard Collaborate by reading the instructions here.
- Encourage a friend to join you by forwarding this email or sending them a link to the registration page.
Here are some blogs we really enjoy about data and statistics:
- FiveThirtyEight.com - from forecasting election results to figuring out which percentage of the ESPN OJ Simpson documentary series contained archival footage, this is a great source for thoughtful analysis and great visualizations. Led by Nate Silver.
- Flowing Data - A blog on data visualization by Nathan Yau, whose book Data Points is one of our team's favorites. Lots of imaginative examples of visualizing anything from America's consumption of various foodstuffs to predictions of when you will, ummm, die. (Note: dying of boredom from our upcoming webinars is not an option.)
We look forward to seeing you soon! If you have any questions in the meantime, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
