Is There a Need for Data Literacy Standards?

This workshop will bring together subject matter experts to discuss their individual work on data literacy. We will also discuss whether any collective activities like standards development would aid individual efforts and the goal of improving data literacy in general in K-12 classrooms and, consequently higher education and the workplace. ;;br Besides standards, other proposals or ideas for collaboration are welcome. The desired outcome of the workshop is to determine whether and how we can advance data literacy by working together.
