International CensusAtSchool Project
|This article does not cite any references or sources. (October 2008)|
The International CensusAtSchool Project collects and disseminates real data for use by teachers and pupils in data-handling, ICT and across the curriculum for learning and teaching. Since the project's inception by the Royal Statistical Society (RSS) Centre for Statistical Education in the United Kingdom, several countries have taken up the project. Presently, CensusAtschool is running in the UK, South Africa, Canada, New Zealand and in Australia.
CensusAtSchool aims to:
- Encourage children to get involved with data handling and learn statistical skills;
- Provide real data for data handling activities;
- Increase awareness of what national censuses are and what they are for;
- Show how Information and Communication Technology (ICT) can be used effectively to enhance teaching and learning especially in the area of data handling.
Access is provided to the International CensusAtSchool Database via the Random Data Selector. This allows students to compare some of their results with students from across the world.
