Zoom In! Learning Science with Data

NSF Awards: 1621289

2019 (see original presentation & discussion)

Grades 9-12

Zoom In, a new online curriculum platform, is designed to develop students’ evidence-based thinking, data analysis and writing skills as they examine important questions related to key earth science and biology concepts. Aligned to the NGSS, the digital curriculum modules use an inquiry-based approach in which students work dynamically with authentic data sets and learn to use the data as evidence to answer questions about topics like earthquakes, climate, exoplanets, and evolution. The tool scaffolds students as they read, interpret, and actively manipulate data sets, and also as they use the results of their data analyses to build and write evidence-supported arguments. The modules also include supports for teachers to launch, guide, assess, and respond to student work. The presentation will provide some examples of the modules and share some lessons learned about incorporating data literacy skills and concepts in the context of regular science instruction, based on pilot testing this tool with teachers and students.
