Promoting Data Literacy

Complex data is all around us—online, in the news, and under our noses each day. EDC's Oceans of Data Institute (ODI) is dedicated to transforming education to help people succeed in school, work, and life in a data-intensive world. Data literacy is not just essential to success in STEM and many other careers. It is key to making wise decisions to improve the well-being of communities, the country, and the world. Today’s students who gain strong data literacy skills and the ability to use data-handling tech tools will solve tomorrow’s environmental, economic, and societal challenges.
