Newsletter for the Section on Statistical Education
Volume 14, Number 1 (Spring 2009)
The e-journal Technology Innovations in Statistics Education (TISE) recently published Volume 2, which included papers by Cliff Konold and Sibel Kazak (Reconnecting Data and Chance), Ann Ooms and Joan Garfield (A Model to Evaluate Online Educational Resources in Statistics), and Michelle Everson and Joan Garfield (An Innovative Approach to Teaching Online Statistics Courses).
In order to better serve authors and readers, beginning with Volume 3 in March, TISE will publish papers as they are accepted. An announcement will be sent to subscribers each quarter to alert our readers to new publications.
Volume 3, Issue 1 will include papers by Jane Watson and Julie Donne (TinkerPlots as a Research Tool to Explore Student Understanding) and Webster West (Social Data Analysis with StatCrunch: Potential Benefits to Statistical Education). Both papers will be available at the end of March.
TISE welcomes research reports of empirical studies, papers that develop a theoretical context for teaching with technology or teaching technology itself, position papers on timely issues, and descriptions of new, innovative technologies. We seek papers on the themes of designing technology to improve statistics education, using technology to develop conceptual understanding, and teaching the use of technology to gain insight into and access to data.
