Civic.Stat.Map - Mapping Datasets, Viz tools, Statistical Concepts and Social Themes




Teaching statistics using real data with a context and purpose is highly recommended in order to improve multivariable thinking, increase conceptual understanding, and promote statistical literacy. This talk introduces CivicStatMap, a multi-component framework that allows linking of datasets on socially-relevant topics to software tools, to statistical concepts and to socio-economic concepts. The framework is loaded with teaching materials so it is able to display the links between the different components, and enables educators working with different types of learners to choose appropriate ways to achieve educational goals related to analysing and understanding socially-meaningful statistics.
