It's Online, Therefore it Exists!: 2009 SOCR Continuing Statistics Education Training & Development Workshop Handbook

Front Cover
SOCR Resource, Aug 10, 2009 - Education - 136 pages
This handbook provides data, materials and tools for technology-enhanced science education. These resources were presented at the 2009 Statistics Online Computational Resource (SOCR) Continuing Education workshop at UCLA. The handbook covers continuing education and training for probability and statistics instructors. Specifically this workshop handbook includes validated educational materials, novel computational tools and useful pedagogical techniques and instruments for statistics education. Examples of these materials include SOCR Java applets for distributions, experiments, analysis, modeling and data exploration, various activities for hands-on demonstrations and virtual experimentation. The SOCR philosophy is that in science education, one-size-does-not-fit-all! The handbook provides many examples of tools, data, materials and infrastructure for technology enhanced science education. However, it?s ultimately the instructor?s responsibility to wrap these resources into a coherent set of materials appropriate for their concrete classes, student?s maturity and course syllabi.
