The objective of this focus area is to work with the community to guide the development and dissemination of data science approaches and resources for education across the community, from PreK-12 to higher education and industry, with the goal to improve data literacy and educational outcomes. This includes:

1. Amplifying the success and reach of data science education and data literacy activities, from virtual and in-person workshops to Massive Open Online Courses (MOOCs), to empower educators and researchers to improve data science practices and reach a broad community

2. Enabling community and educational institutions across the region to deliver data science education to underserved constituencies, extending the success of the Data Science for All workshops, and perhaps adding domain-specific data science and data carpentry workshops

3. Increasing community collaboration to leverage the Big Data for Education spoke best practices, including innovations in intelligent tutor pedagogy, and collaborative analyses of Big Data for Education MOOC data
