Introduction to Creating Data Visualization: Taking Numbers & Creating Compelling Stories – Workshop
BranchED is excited to present this Data Workshop Series.
The quality of teacher preparation is driven and informed through data use. Data visualization is the presentation of data in a pictorial or graphical format. It is crucial for analyzing complex data, identifying patterns, and gaining valuable insights. When data is simplified and presented visually, decision-makers are better able to make fast, accurate, and informed decisions for continuous program improvement. In this 3-part virtual data workshop series, you will gain an understanding of how data visualization governs one’s perception and understanding. As a result, you will develop the foundational skills required for preparing and organizing data for action. Number of participants is capped.
