Students Can Explore Data Literacy with TuvaLabs

Our blogger today is Theresa Shafer, Online Community Manager for New Tech Network.

If any of you happen to follow me on Twitter, you know it is my go-to place when I am working on a project with colleagues or facilitating a school finding the resources they need.  This is exactly how I found Tuva Labs.

So now, you get to meet Tuva Labs, too!

We were tweeting about a fantastic project that EVERYONE is invited to check out, The Global Happiness Project , @TuvaLabs sent us a tweet saying they thought they had some resources that could be helpful and they weren't kidding!

As soon as we began communicating, we knew this would be successful collaboration, they are as passionate about student learning, critical thinking, and real relevant experiences as we are.

Here are just a few of the many data sets they have available for you to dive deeply into with your students.

Check out some of the work of students exploring global happiness to get an idea of how you can incorporate data literacy into your classroom.

On March 4th at 8pm EST,  we will be co-chatting during #PBLChat with TuvaLabs and taking a deeper look at why data literacy is important for our students.  Join us for the chat and bring your questions!
