The Power of Data


The Power of Data  analyzes the types of data available to school librarians and how the data can be used to support school library programs. Dr. Sandra Andrews explores with participants a variety of datasets at the local, state, and national level that include information on schools and school libraries. Participants compare local and national data to determine how it can help in making decisions at the school level. The concept of benchmarking is reviewed and demonstrated. Topics also include using data for advocacy and communicating needs and successes.
