Visualizing Oceans of Data: Ocean Tracks - A Case Study

Full Description: 

In 2013, EDC's Oceans of Data Institute team published Visualizing Oceans of Data, which communicated the findings of a two-year NSF-funded study (Ocean Tracks) that gathered knowledge relevant to the design of educational interfaces to large online scientific data sets. Because the online availability of large scientific data sets is still a relatively recent and rapidly growing phenomenon, the authors knew there was still much to learn and report on. This case study features the guidelines that emerged as the most relevant and important to engaging students with the Ocean Tracks data and curriculum. It also shares valuable lessons learned about designing curricula and working with teachers to support a new interface in the classroom.
