Playing with data

Use free tools and resources to examine data; consider the stories they tell, how to visualize the stories, and how to act on what we learn

Might it be possible to for kids and schools to find public data sets (e.g., Direct Relief <https://www.directrelief.org>, Charity Wise <http://charitywiseinc.com>, and Give Well <http://www.givewell.org>), experiment with tools that structure the data (e.g., Excel), discuss the analysis as a team on Slack <https://slack.com/>, play with visualizing the data (e.g., Tableau (free trial), present the results as an infographic <https://www.canva.com/create/infographics/>, and then blog about what we learned on Tumblr?

Thank you to everyone who has commented so far or looked over the post! Here is the start of a build out--I'd be grateful for feedback. I work with kids privately, so my sense of scale will differ from yours. What sounds practical to you?
