Bringing Real-World Data and Visualizations of Student-Implemented Data Struc...

Grades 9-12, Undergraduate

This video introduces interested teachers/educators to BRIDGES, a software infrastructure for  programming assignments in data structures and algorithms courses.  BRIDGES provides two key capabilities: (1) easy to use interface to real world datasets spanning social networks, entertainment (movies on IMDB, Song Lyrics), scientific data (real-time USGIS Earthquake Data), civic issues (crime data), and literature (books); and (2) a visualization of the acquired data can be used in assignments by students to populate their implemented data structures, including the capability to bring out attributes of the dataset.  The visualizations are displayed on the BRIDGES website and are easily shared (with family, friends, peers, etc) via a web link.  The presentation will showcase a variety of example projects and assignments used  in data structures and algorithms courses, with new extensions to lower level Computer Science courses, that can be of interest to a wider and more  diverse audience, including high school  
students and educators.
