Varieties of SOCR training and dissemination events are organized each year and most of
these will be archived here as event-specific materials and learning resources.
The 2010 SOCR Advanced Placement (AP) training, continuing education and development workshop will extend the efforts of the 2007 SOCR/CAUSEway workshop and the 2009 SOCR Continuing Education workshop. The aims of this workshop are to demonstrate the functionality, utilization and assessment of the current SOCR resources in the AP statistics curricula. The SOCR Motto It's Online, Therefore it Exists! clearly indicates that all of these tools, activities and materials are freely available over the Internet to the entire community. This workshop will be of most value to AP teachers and college instructors of probability and statistics classes who have interests in exploring novel technology-enhanced approaches for statistics education. The workshop will provide an interactive forum for exchange of ideas and recommendations for strategies to integrate computers, modern pedagogical techniques, the Internet and new student assessment techniques.
The Statistics Online Computational Resource (www.SOCR.ucla.edu) provides one of the largest collections of free Internet-based resources for probability and statistics education. SOCR develops, validates and disseminates two core types of materials – instructional resources and computational libraries.
The 2009 SOCR aims to demonstrate the functionality, utilization and assessment of the current SOCR resources in probability and statistics curricula at different levels. The SOCR tools, activities and materials are openly and anonymously available over the Internet to the entire community. This workshop will be of most value to AP teachers and college instructors of probability and statistics classes who have interests in exploring novel technology-enhanced approaches for improving statistics education. The workshop will provide an interactive forum for exchange of ideas and recommendations for strategies to integrate computers, modern pedagogical approaches, the Internet and new student assessment techniques. Registration and participation is free and all participants will be provided with free room and board for the duration of the workshop. There is a limit of the participants we can admit, but the workshop will be streamed live. URL: http://wiki.stat.ucla.edu/socr/index.php/SOCR_Events_Aug2009
