Royal Society Schools Network CPD: using ‘big data’ in the classroom

21 February, 2019 @ 9:30 am - 4:00 pm

The Royal Society, responsible for running this CPD session, is a Fellowship of the world’s most eminent scientists and is the oldest scientific academy in continuous existence. They recognise, promote, and support excellence in science and have played a part in some of the most fundamental, significant, and life-changing discoveries in scientific history.

 

Aimed at both primary and secondary (5-18 years) science and maths teachers in the UK, this event will introduce the theme of using ‘big data in the classroom’.
Teachers will be guided through what big data is, why data manipulation is a vital skill for students to start engaging with now, and receive some practical training on the sourcing of data sets and visualisation examples.

The event aims to develop confidence in teaching data science techniques, help develop professional networks and provide links to free resources that can be used to stretch and challenge students.
This event is most suitable for those teaching primary science, biology, geography, chemistry, maths, physics or any other subjects that use basic data sets at the moment.
