What’s out there

Real-time data use in classrooms and other educational settings has gained a lot of attention in recent years. But the challenges to using and incorporating data effectively are still immense. Most of us are still in the prototype phase, trying to build new interfaces and curricula to find out what works. As a result, we spend a lot of time conducting needs assessments on what we know, what’s already out there and what we need to fulfill our goals and the needs of our audience.

A fellow observatory educator recently asked me what studies on using real-time data in ocean education I was aware of. So here’s a place to start.

This isn’t a long list and I’m sure there are more studies or needs assessment reports out there. Please comment below if you know of any.

But I think it’s clear that we all still have a lot more to learn.
