Authentic datasets have the unique ability to capture the attention of students and engage them in the work of scientists. While there is no shortage of data available online, it takes significant time and energy to find and curate datasets for use in classrooms. In addition, datasets are often large and messy and difficult to work with using just pencil and paper. Digital Data Nuggets on the DataClassroom web-app help address this problem.

The most difficult challenge for educators and teachers is mastering pedagogy to structure their work while preserving a child-centered approach to environmental education. Literacy and alphabetization represent only one of three bodies of knowledge. Let us explore and link the others for a more complete approach to education.
