Did you know that students taught for a single year in high school by a great teacher earn an average of $50,000 more over the course of their lifetime? Education can increase or decrease a child’s likelihood of economic mobility. In the Big Data For Education professional certificate series, teachers and educational administrations can take a data-driven approach to education, learning how to use data to improve instruction and creating long-term value for their students.

In the first course, Big Data Solutions to Economic and Social Problems, you will examine the historical evidence identifying the characteristics that lead to improved outcomes. You will see some of the benefits of big data and how it can be used to measure mobility related to K-12 education and see how test scores, student performance, class size, and funding can affect a student's future economic status.

In the second course, Introduction to Data Wise: A Collaborative Process to Improve Learning & Teaching, you will learn how to parse the multiple data streams available to educators to improve learning and teaching. You will also have the opportunity to share insights and experiences about school improvement with educators from around the world and learn what is involved in using data to build a culture of collaborative inquiry.

Big Data for Education is geared to help teachers and administrators understand how to use data to better teach students and build a more equitable future.
