Statistical education: the education of teachers and children


Session chair: Lucía Zapata


This session aims to discuss three researches that investigate statistical education in teacher training and practice. It presents results of researches developed in Latin America. The diversity of contexts and theoretical frameworks enrich the problematization of the session. The first research presents the main results of an experience of a professional development program with elementary, middle and high school in-service statistics teachers from Colombia. Then, a research conducted in southern Brazil discusses Statistical Education in the curricular reforms, public policies and pedagogical practices and brings significant contributions to the understanding of the research progress, the recognition of theoretical and methodological diversity, on the priority themes, as well as the gaps to be investigated. And the other Brazilian research presents the backstage of a teacher's classroom that uses creative insubordination to educate statistically, what objective is to generate and foster the students' self-confidence to develop statistical skills, through argumentation.
