Newsletter for the Section on Statistical Education
Volume 13, Number 2 (Fall 2008)
The new e-journal Technology Innovations in Statistics Education (TISE) continues to attract a large number of readers, a year after its launch. To date, there have been roughly 3700 downloads of the articles in Issue 1, Volume 1 with a median number of downloads per article of about 630. Issue 1, Volume 2 will be published this Fall, and can be found at http://tise.stat.ucla.edu. Readers who would like to be alerted when the issue is published should visit the website and join the mailing list.
After publication of the first issue, TISE has received roughly one submission per month and, of course, is interested in receiving many more. Technology has created entire new data types and problems, and these affect not only how we teach, but what we teach. Providing access to these data requires that we teach students not just how to use technology, but how to create and design technology. TISE is looking for scholarly papers that will help statistics educators understand what technology to teach, how to teach it, how to implement technology to improve understanding of statistics, and other issues concerning the integration of technology into statistics education. Papers can be case studies, position papers, or research papers.
