Week 10 Data Collection and Analysis
Unit 2Types of Tools Content Exploration Production Communication Data Collection/Analysis
Definition of Data Collection/Analysis Tools Form of learning whereby students use technology to gather information and/or synthesize information
Your Ideas Spanish: Amount of immigration affected by policy changes Biology: Insect classification Math: Graph linear equations and inequalities | hourly temps Language Arts: Gather data for research paper Economics: Analyze factors that impacted latest financial crisis
Social Studies (and L.A.?)
Texas Students Track Swine Flu
H1N1 – Google Earth
WW2 – Google Earth
Physics – Google Earth
9/11 – Google Earth
German - Wordle Example
U.S. Constitution – Wordle Example
Lecture Question #1 How could you use Maps, Google Earth, or Wordle to collect/analyze data in your classroom?
GoMotion! GoTemp! GoMotion! And GoTemp!
Lecture Question #2 How could you use Probes, Tinketplots, Fathom, Excel, or Inspiredata in your classroom?
M&Ms Case Studies
Lecture Question #3 Write down how many: RED BLUE BROWN YELLOW ORANGE GREEN

GRADE Case Mrs. Geiger teaches 6th grade Gives out candy on Halloween Teaching probability Math 6.6: Students determine theoretical and experimental probabilities and use them to make predictions about events. Wants to put the candy to work Plan Theoretical Probability Review Myth Busters Activity for Experimental Probability
MythBusters There is a rumor/myth that a disproportionately high percentage of M&M’s are brown because brown ones require the least dye, making them the least expensive to produce. So, the more brown M&M’s to a package, the cheaper the production cost for the company, meaning a higher profit.
S: Standard Math 6.6: Students determine theoretical and experimental probabilities and use them to make predictions about events.
N: Needs Single Classroom, Teacher computer, Projector Computer lab available if needed Full class activity 1 day activity (Halloween) – 1-2 hours can be allotted Need something to efficiently collect M&M colors from 25 students and represent the data in an easy-to-understand way.
O: Options Content Exploration Tools Production Tools Communication Tools Data Collection and Analysis Tools
Content Exploration Video on experimental probability In this case, the activity COULD BE the content exploration activity – it will introduce the idea of experimental probability
Production Tasks “Homemade” episode of Myth Busters Myth Busters report/brochure Flow chart of Myth Busting process Letter to Mars Corporation Graph/chart/visual Class worksheet
Communication Tools In this case, students will need to communicate their M&M distribution for collection, but that should be a feature of the data collection tool, so in this case, the communication and data collection tools overlap

W&Y : What and Why Lecture Worksheet #4 Keeping in mind your production activity choice, what data collection tool is the best fit for your lesson? Justify your choice. Lecture Worksheet #5 Did any of the data collection/analysis tools you chose do double (or triple) duty, also serving as content exploration, communication, or production tools?
…Busted This myth is… busted.
Something to think about… Did any of the data collection/analysis tools you chose do double (or triple) duty, also serving as content exploration, communication, or production tools?
A brief summary…
Unit 2 – Tools for learning Content Exploration Reference, Drill, Tutorial, Games, Simulations, Open Ended, Learning Management/Integrated Learning Systems Production Tools Communication Tools Synchronous vs Asynchronous One to one, one to many, many to many Text, audio, images, video Data Collection and Analysis Tools
Flashback Shift #1 – Digital technology (access to info, access to communication) is making a new kind of education POSSIBLE. Shift #2 – Digital natives and standards-driven education are making a new kind of education NECESSARY.
Flashback “Its not about memorizing facts, but do you know how to find information, do you know how to validate it, do you know how to synthesize it, do you know how to communicate it, do you know how to collaborate with it, do you know how to problem solve with it? THOSE are the new 21st century literacies.” Content exploration Production Communication Data Collection and Analysis
Lecture WS #6 Take 5 good minutes and REALLY reflect. Now that you’ve SEEN quite a bit of new technology tools with educational potential, reflect on the new education that is both possible and necessary as a result. How can the types of tools you’ve seen contribute to the 21st century literacies. Why do they need to?
