Discover the difference data can make in your classroom
Use data to developing thriving learning communities in the classroom and school-wide.
Teachers and leaders know that data can be a powerful aid in driving student learning and change in schools, but are often left without guidance when it comes to which data to collect, how to analyse it and when and where to use it.
Our data in schools professional learning services will demonstrate how understanding and using data effectively can not only transform classrooms but transform entire schools communities.
Based on Dr Selena Fisk's two best-selling books Using and analysing data in Australian schools and Leading data-informed change in schools, we will bring specific, classroom-tested strategies and tips straight to your school, featuring real examples taken from common data sources — as well as incorporating data from your own students.
