Bringing data to life in the classroom


Keeping up to date with ABS resources relevant to teachers and students has never been easier.

Yesterday's release of Education News, Feb 2009 (cat. no. 1330.0) highlights the latest curriculum related teaching resources, student activities and statistical tools developed by the ABS.

The newsletter includes practical and fun ideas for introducing statistics into the classroom. These activities draw on real-life data from ABS surveys as well as CensusAtSchool data to provide meaningful learning experiences to students.

Free Teacher Training
This edition of the newsletter also includes information about the upcoming Teacher Professional Development Days around Australia. These workshops provide free computer based training in navigating the ABS website, using ABS data in the classroom and discovering resources developed especially for teachers.

For more information about bringing data to life in the classroom see the Education Services webpages.
