Statistical Literacy Social Media Project for the Masses
Gundlach, Ellen; Maybee, Clarence; O'Shea, Kevin
Journal of Faculty Development, v29 n2 p71-79 May 2015
This article examines a social media assignment used to teach and practice statistical literacy with over 400 students each semester in large-lecture traditional, fully online, and flipped sections of an introductory-level statistics course. Following the social media assignment, students completed a survey on how they approached the assignment. Drawing from the authors' experiences with the project and the survey results, this article offers recommendations for developing social media assignments in large courses that focus on the interplay between the social media tool and the implications of assignment prompts.
