Engaging students in learning statistics


Session chair: William Finzer


Technology is part of the new reality in the educational system. Students use it, and teachers need to find new ways to engage students. Nevertheless, it is not always easy to create and implement innovative learning materials in order to promote statistical literacy for both teachers and students. The purpose of this session will be to address this issue from three different perspectives, namely 1) the creation of a new platform that allows statistics teachers to collaboratively create and share learning resources; 2) the use of applets as a modern supplement to teaching techniques through Shiny, the new web application framework for R; and 3) the potential of tablet technologies for enhancing the teaching and learning of statistics at the primary school level.
