4T Virtual Conference on Data Literacy

A free, virtual conference -- attend from your desk!

Students encounter data and statistics everywhere — at work, home, online, and at school. But do they know what those statistics mean, how they were gathered, and with what criteria?

We propose that data literacy is a new frontier in reading comprehension and citizenship. This free online conference will bring together high school educators, librarians, and others interested in how we can build the data and statistical literacy capacity of high school students. Participants from around the world are welcome to join us!
