Exploring Data Worlds Research Project

Exploring Data Worlds At The Public Library is an IMLS-funded project aimed at studying data literacy for teens, and specifically engagement levels during data literacy workshops at the public library. As part of my role as a research assistant (supervised by Dr. Leanne Bowler, Pratt Institute) during 2019, my responsibilities have included:

  • coding workshop memos for teen engagement factors
  • presenting findings, and co-facilitating a workshop with Pratt SI student Genevieve Milliken on using NYC open data sets (as part of NYC Open Data Week)
  • creating an open-source data literacy workshop playbook (expected published date summer 2019)
  • co-writing a paper with project supervisors on our findings (expected published date 2019-2020)
