DataSketch: Exploring Computational Data Visualization in the Middle Grades

The DataSketch project explores how middle school students think and learn about data visualization. It involves two interrelated strands of work: (1) research on grade 5-8 students’ existing competencies and practices related to data visualization, and (2) the development and study of a tablet based toolkit for students to create digital ink┬áprogrammable visualizations that respond to archival or live data stream input.
