This presentation will introduce a new approach to teaching basic data science by using avatars as data points in data visualizations. The approach is intended to make this topics more approachable — particularly for those who may have math anxiety or limited prior quantitative background.
Participants will be able to conceptualize how virtual worlds can be used to teach basic data science concepts.
Participants will be able to access four data visualizations in Second Life to enhance their own understanding of basic data science or to help others do so.
