Explore ways to collect, store and leverage data for improved educational outcomes

Join us for a 2.5-hour online symposium to learn how data can be leveraged to improve student learning, drive successful teaching practices as well as foster better operational outcomes in a K-12 setting. 

Participants will gain a comprehensive understanding of the importance of data in education, how to collect and analyze data, and how to use data to inform  decision making. 

Through hands-on activities and real-world examples, participants will hear from a variety of school based examples of how data has been used to transform practice. Whether you are a teacher, administrator, or other education professional, this symposium is the perfect opportunity to build your knowledge, gain from hearing a variety of perspectives and leave with a network of fellow educators interested in this topic.
