A Call for a Humanistic Stance Toward K–12 Data Science Education

There is growing interest in how to better prepare K–12 students to work with data. In this article, we assert that these discussions of teaching and learning must attend to the human dimensions of

Data Detectives: A Data Science Program for Middle Grade Learners

Abstract Data science is a highly interdisciplinary field that comprises various principles, methodologies, and guidelines for the analysis of data. The creation of appropriate curricula that use

"That's What Science Is, All This Data:" Coding Data Visualizations in Middle School Science Classrooms

In this experience report, we describe the Investigating Air Quality curriculum unit that integrates computational data practices with science learning in middle school science classrooms. The unit

Building System Capacity with a Modeling-Based Inquiry Program for Elementary Students: A Case Study

A qualitative case study analysis investigates the system variables that supported or impeded one reform effort aimed at improving elementary students’ science learning and discusses broader implications for building the capacity to overcome system barriers.

Combining computational and science practices in K-12 education

This work intends to develop a data visualization tool that allows students to engage in new ways of exploring and making sense of data through a block-based programming environment, and codesign with middle school science teachers curricular units that will integrate the tool with the investigation of specific scientific phenomena.

Activity Monitor Gaming and the Next Generation Science Standards: Students Engaging with Data, Measurement Limitations, and Personal Relevance

This paper connects the technological practice of activity monitor gaming to the Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS) science and engineering practice of “analyzing and interpreting data,” and to

Choose Your Evidence

Schooling traditionally affords students more experience in learning and practicing procedures than in identifying what a situation calls for. When asked to choose appropriate numerical data to

It is argued that the effects of educational methods are influenced by a multitude of (interacting) factors related to student and teacher characteristics, context, domain, frequency of use, timing, and probably more and that adopting and combining different approaches may be necessary to reach optimal levels of learning.



Junior high school students' construction of global views of data and data representations

The purpose of this paper is to describe and analyze the first steps of a pair of 7th grade students working through an especially designed curriculum on Exploratory Data Analysis (EDA) in a

Science Education in Three-Part Harmony: Balancing Conceptual, Epistemic, and Social Learning Goals

Two major reform efforts in K-12 science education have taken place during the past 50 years. The first was the 1950-1970 curriculum reform efforts motivated by the launching of Sputnik and sponsored

Teaching data science to secondary students: the mobilize introduction to data science curriculum

The Mobilize project has created and implemented a course for secondary students, Introduction to Data Science (IDS), that aims to develop computational and statistical thinking skills so that students can access and analyze data from a variety of traditional and non-traditional sources.

Working at the boundaries of mathematics education and statistics education communities of practice

Statistics education has begun to mature as a discipline distinct from mathematics education, creating new perspectives on the teaching and learning of statistics. This commentary emphasizes the

The Longitudinal Development of Understanding of Average

The development of the understanding of average was explored through interviews with 94 students from Grades 3 to 9, follow-up interviews with 22 of these students after 3 years, and follow-up

Becoming Racially Literate About Data and Data-Literate About Race: Data Visualizations in the Classroom as a Site of Racial-Ideological Micro-Contestations

ABSTRACT Data visualizations are now commonplace in the public media. The ability to interpret and create such visualizations, as a form of data literacy, is increasingly important for democratic

Youth Perspectives on Critical Data Literacies

This paper explores the critical perspectives of youth who are programming with public data about their own learning and social interaction in the Scratch online community and identifies a series of themes in how these youth critique, question, and debate the implications of data analytics.

The Framework was developed by eighteen individuals who are well-known in their fields as well as four design teams that represent the four domains of science (life science, physical science, earth

Beyond transparency: How students make representations meaningful

This work proposes a new framework for understanding acts of interpretation that focuses on four major constructs: registrations, symbolic forms, interpretive genres, and interpretive maxims and demonstrates this framework's utility by applying it to excerpts of middle school students interpreting unfamiliar representations of light reflection.
