Middle School Eagles have been immersed in a Data Visualization Quest, learning the questions, examples, tools and challenges needed to convert bits and bytes into pictures and graphs to more easily create and discover truth in the world.
For the exhibition, Eagles:
Crafted a compelling question, gathered the data, cleaned up any errors or inconsistencies, chose the right display and took care to avoid “visualization traps” that could be misleading.
Delivered a “pitch” to convince someone to fund their project; and
Provided examples of the ways we track learning at Acton Academy.
What did we learn? We learned that when discovering and creating truth, a picture may be worth a billion words.
