Wilkerson, Michelle Hoda; Polman, Joseph L. – Journal of the Learning Sciences, 2020
The emerging field of Data Science has had a large impact on science and society. This has led to over a decade of calls to establish a corresponding field of Data Science Education. There is still a need, however, to more deeply conceptualize what a field of Data Science Education might entail in terms of scope, responsibility, and execution.…

Wise, Alyssa Friend – Journal of the Learning Sciences, 2020
This article discusses how each of the papers in this special issue explored some combination of subject, audience, and data scientist perspectives with an eye toward helping students situate their relationship to data. Specifically, within the data scientist perspective, the papers examined a variety of ways in which students can relate to data…

Roberts, Jessica; Lyons, Leilah – Journal of the Learning Sciences, 2020
Engaging learners with complex unfamiliar datasets is a known challenge in Data Science education. One promising phenomenon investigated in related work is perspective-taking. A first-person "actor" perspective can help facilitate group and individual sensemaking by mediating observations and actions taken by learners. Here we…

Stornaiuolo, Amy – Journal of the Learning Sciences, 2020
This article centers sociocultural and sociopolitical considerations of how young people understand, represent, and use data by presenting findings from a social design research study about how students in a public urban high school authored "data stories" using personal data they curated, collected, and visualized. The study contributes…

Lee, Victor R.; Dubovi, Ilana – Journal of the Learning Sciences, 2020
This article reports on an exploratory study of quantitative data use situated in families' management routines while taking care of a child with Type 1 diabetes (T1D). T1D treatment requires frequent measurement and recording of numerical data about blood sugar concentration, nutritional intake, and insulin dosage at the child's home, at school,…

Hardy, Lisa; Dixon, Colin; Hsi, Sherry – Journal of the Learning Sciences, 2020
This paper contributes a theoretical framework informed by historical, philosophical and ethnographic studies of science practice to argue that data should be considered to be actively produced, rather than passively collected. We further argue that traditional school science laboratory investigations misconstrue the nature of data and overly…

Rubin, Andee – Journal of the Learning Sciences, 2020
Teaching students to reason with data is not a totally new enterprise. A small but insistent statistics education community has been studying the process for decades. This commentary provides an introduction to some major themes of that research, in order to provide common ground for conversations between learning sciences researchers and those…

Kahn, Jennifer – Journal of the Learning Sciences, 2020
Open large-scale datasets (LSDS) and data visualization technologies are new cultural tools that have potential to inform public dialogue and learning about important socioeconomic and scientific matters, particularly if the data is used to consider both personal and shared experiences. This paper reports on a design study in which diverse middle…

Van Wart, Sarah; Lanouette, Kathryn; Parikh, Tapan S. – Journal of the Learning Sciences, 2020
Data increasingly mediates how we understand the world. As such, there is growing interest in designing initiatives to help young people learn about data--not only the techno-mathematical skills necessary to work with data, but also the dispositions needed to participate in data-centric ways of knowing and doing. In this article, we argue that as…

Vossoughi, Shirin; Jackson, Ava; Chen, Suzanne; Roldan, Wendy; Escudé, Meg – Journal of the Learning Sciences, 2020
Studies of embodied cognition offer powerful accounts of the semiotic resources people use as they think together within different domains. Yet this research does not typically foreground the history of relationships within focal interactions--a history we have found to be consequential to the ways embodied actions unfold. Through ethnographic and…

Harris, Emily M.; Dixon, Colin G. H.; Bird, Erin Bridges; Ballard, Heidi L. – Journal of the Learning Sciences, 2020
In youth-focused community and citizen (YCCS) youth in classrooms and community-based programs produce data that scientists, resource managers and community members will use. This "nested" data situates learners' scientific activity within larger datasets, projects, and communities, with consequences for youth agency. To document…

Walkoe, Janet D. K.; Luna, Melissa J. – Journal of the Learning Sciences, 2020
Much of the work in the Learning Sciences and Computer-Supported Collaborated Learning communities have focused on understanding and designing for learning in collaborative spaces. This work utilizes methods such as Interaction Analysis and has attended to multiple dimensions and timescales of learning. It has redefined ideas about knowledge and…

Hecht, Marijke; Crowley, Kevin – Journal of the Learning Sciences, 2020
An ecological framework is often used to describe the context for learning in educational research and practice. However, there is often a focus on descriptive aspects that frame the ecosystem as a complicated set of interconnected elements--but not a true complex problem. Acknowledging connections between ecosystem elements is not enough to…

Freedman, Eric B. – Journal of the Learning Sciences, 2020
Background: Despite its numerous benefits, dialogic discussion seldom occurs in secondary history classrooms. To examine ways to promote it, this study compared two ninth-grade classes' productive disciplinary engagement (PDE) in a whole-class discussion on the Gulf of Tonkin incident. Methods: The two class sections were comparable academically…

Boelens, Ruth; De Wever, Bram; McKenney, Susan – Journal of the Learning Sciences, 2020
Background: This case reports on a teacher education course that aimed to support adult learners with a vocational education background to accomplish open-ended tasks. Conjecture mapping was used to identify the most salient design features, and to test if, how, and why these course features supported learners. Methods: Inspired by ethnographic…
