Why continue torturing yourself with data you need but in a format that nobody can make any sense of?

I Help Educators Like You Make Your Data Accessible To Those Who Need It When They Need It.

Chris Smith Data Visualization

You are collecting lots and lots of data.  Does your data get used by teachers and other stakeholders in your school, or does it disappear into an “academic black hole?”  A lot of schools are in this situation. But you don’t have to be.

Wouldn’t you like to know that all your hard work collecting data can be used to transform teaching and learning in schools?  I can help you turn your data into information that is easily accessible and understood by the people who need it the most.

If you want to improve the accessibility and usefulness of data for your teachers and staff or you just want to learn more, feel free to get in touch.
