Cyberlearning 2017 will also be webcast for interested attendees.
In this webinar, we will take a close look at the Common Online Data Analysis Platform (CODAP) and its use as a technology for getting learners working with data in classrooms and informal settings. Discussion will center on what technology we need for this purpose and how to bring it about.
There will be a question-and-answer session about a Data Science Education Technology conference on February 15–17.
