Data literacy is increasingly an essential skill set for navigating everyday life. Learn how public libraries can increase awareness and understanding among youth of the pervasive role of data in their lives. The rich resources of the U.S. Census Bureau’s Statistics in Schools<http://ala.informz.net/z/cjUucD9taT0xMDE2MDczNiZwPTEmdT0xMTU2NzU2MDAwJmxpPTg4NzEzMDg5/index.html> are a valuable tool to advance data literacy, and many libraries are using Census data to foster civic education and community engagement among children and teens. The webinar speakers will discuss approaches to data literacy that reach diverse populations and address real-world issues of interest to youth. Discover how public library programs and services can help children and young adults think critically and ethically about data.
