The ability to process information in an analytical and computational way will be in high demand as students enter the digitally skilled future. Because of this, teachers are now feeling the pressure to incorporate more coding and data analytics into their curricula. Imagine being able to use a university-level analytics platform — capable of big data processing, data visualizations, math equations, and text formatting — in your grades 5-12 class. And imagine this tool being cost-free, easy to use, and only needing a web browser to operate!

This is a real opportunity for simple, accessible, and interactive learning — we call it Callysto  (www.callysto.ca).

In this workshop session, teachers will be introduced to the federally-funded Callysto platform, and will get the chance to explore modules that have been developed for existing course curricula (covering, among other subjects, history, science, and literature). We will show you how to incorporate these modules into your classroom, and will work with you to customize modules to fit your specific needs.
