Ferdinand | EducationGhana | December 21| UEW Scholars Collaborate with NASA on Global Education Initiative for Data Literacy
“Prof. Sakina Acquah and Dr. Benedict Arko from the University of Education, Winneba, join forces with U.S. researchers in a NASA-funded project to enhance data literacy among educators globally.”
Winneba, Ghana – In a groundbreaking collaboration, Prof. Sakina Acquah and Dr. Benedict Arko from the University of Education, Winneba (UEW), have teamed up with renowned researchers from the United States, Dr. Alvitta Ottley and Amanda Makulec, in a project funded by NASA through the Gordon Research Conferences.
Titled “Comparing Self-Assessed and Applied Competencies to Inform Building K–12 Educator Data Literacy,” the project signifies a significant step in advancing education globally.
Over 12 months, this diverse team of researchers aims to assess and enhance data and visualization literacy among pre-service and early career educators. The project stands out for its cross-cultural approach, encompassing educators in both Ghana and the USA.
The researchers seek to uncover cultural determinants influencing educators’ abilities to comprehend, interpret, and critically evaluate visualizations, to inform tailored strategies for improving data literacy on a global scale.
Prof. Sakina Acquah, representing the UEW team, expressed enthusiasm about the collaborative effort and its potential impact on education. She highlighted the significance of international collaboration in addressing crucial challenges in education. “By understanding the cultural nuances affecting data literacy, we can tailor educational programs to bridge gaps and empower educators worldwide,” Prof. Acquah remarked.
The project’s outcomes are anticipated to provide a roadmap for developing effective training programs for pre-service and early-career teachers. These programs aim to equip educators with the skills to effectively teach data and graphical literacy. The researchers believe that enhancing educators’ capabilities will foster a more informed and engaged citizenry capable of making better data-led decisions.
As the project takes flight, the UEW scholars and their U.S. counterparts embark on a journey poised to reshape the landscape of data literacy in education, transcending geographical boundaries for the benefit of educators and students globally.
