Engaged learning with Inspire Data
Posted January 23, 2008on:
Today I tackled Inspire Data so I can introduce it to a math teacher who will be co-teaching a new class. I played with the templates, looked at the possibilities– and had an “ahhhhh” moment when I discovered the database for baseball statistics. Within seconds I had the latest stats on the WSU basketball category leaders and minutes later a series of visual representations on 3 point attempts, 3 points made, field goal attempts, and field goals made– all those things that only a person who likes both data and technology might like. Inspire Data looks like a perfect tool for engaging learners in an exciting and visual way.
