SOCR Events: It's Online, Therefore it Exists! 2009 SOCR Training & Development Workshop

Title

It's Online, Therefore it Exists!
2009 SOCR Continuing Statistics Education Training & Development Workshop

Workshop Summary and Goals

The 2009 SOCR training, continuing education and development workshop will extend the efforts that started at the 2007 SOCR/CAUSEway Workshop. The aims of this workshop are to demonstrate the functionality, utilization and assessment of the current SOCR resources in probability and statistics curricula at different levels. The SOCR Motto It's Online, Therefore it Exists! clearly indicates that all of these tools, activities and materials are freely available over the Internet to the entire community. This workshop will be of most value to AP teachers and college instructors of probability and statistics classes who have interests in exploring novel technology-enhances approaches for improving statistics education. The workshop will provide an interactive forum for exchange of ideas and recommendations for strategies to integrate computers, modern pedagogical approaches, the Internet and new student assessment techniques.
