Welcome to the blog for SPIDAS project. SPIDAS stands for Strategic partnership for Innovative in Data Analytics in Schools and in this innovate and extend best practice in the teaching of data analytics through student-centred, problem-based learning, focusing on the impacts of weather and climate change.
This website is a toolkit to design a project learning-based activity for your students.
For our project information, please go to this page.
Our proposed Data analytics framework is here. This is a framework to guide productive data analytics processes. We also list some skills you might want to develop as well as links to various learning tools such as Thinkingtogether website for collaborative learning.
You might first read our case studies. We conducted our pilot studies in primary and secondary schools in the UK, Spain and Turkey.
In order to build your own activity, this page will guide you how to develop 5-10 hours of project-based teaching activities.
We particularly use a technological tool called CODAP. CODAP is a free, online tool for data analytics, and easy to use, but you can find more information from here. We of course do not discourage you to use other tools such as Excel, R, Python, etc.!
