How data can change our worldview (+ why CensusAtSchool matters more than ever) – Rachel Cunliffe,
All our students are affected by data every day and its influence is only increasing. Data has the power to challenge our students to think differently about their world, rather than only being influenced by what the media tells them, or what their social media filter bubble displays. Now in its sixteenth year, CensusAtSchool continues to provide unique insights for our students about themselves. In this workshop, we will cover a variety of examples where the data can take us by surprise, including drawing from CensusAtSchool data. We’ll also look at issues with this year’s official Census and its connection to CensusAtSchool.

Anne and Rachel are available (by arrangement) if you feel your students would benefit from a data detective visiting your classroom. We are looking for CAS data ambassadors across the country who would be prepared to present (particularly at the Primary and Intermediate levels). Let us know if you are keen! email@example.com
