Data Use in Education

By Vivett Dukes & Shanay Oseafiana

#SafeSpaceConvos is a Twitter chat led and hosted by teacher Vivett Dukes on alternating Mondays at 8:30pm ET. By providing a forum for honest dialogue and connection, we come together to learn, grow, and co-construct solutions to pressing problems for students.

This #SafeSpaceConvos chat was co-hosted by Shanay Oseafiana. Shanay is an 8th grade English Language Arts teacher. Born and raised in Bronx, NY, today she teaches in the same community where she grew up.


Chat Highlights

Q1: How is data collected and used in your school to inform instruction and build school culture? How have these methods been effective?


Q2: How does data-driven instruction isolate our marginalized students? What practices have you tried to fill the gaps for underserved students?


Q3: How does a systemic approach to improving learning impact students of color? What approaches can we take to make sure we are “data informed” and able serve students from all backgrounds?


Q4: What actions have you taken, or plan to take, to ensure data does not oppress students of color? How do you hope that data use will lead to academic achievement and success for students?


Be bold. Be authentic. Join #SafeSpaceConvos.
