2019 / Creative Data Literacy Activities

Members: 7
Latest Activity: Jun 3, 2019

DESCRIPTION

Libraries play a central role in helping the public access and engage with civic data. Existing programs focus on tool-based capacity building, job skills, research support, and more. Over the last 3 years, the Data Culture Project has worked with a variety of libraries and museums to develop fun, hands-on, and engaging data-related activities that help people from all kinds of backgrounds learn to "speak data".

In this 90 minute workshop you'll hear about some of our work and participate in playful activities from our toolkit. You'll walk away with concrete ideas and documentation for adding new data literacy activities to your library's set of public offerings. We'll discuss some of our design principles, and plan for how we can work together to develop and spread new activities. There will be focused time to share what *you* are up to in your setting, so we can learn from each other.
