    Why data is powering our world

    Why data is powering our world

    Qlik’s Joe DosSantos and Kirk Borne investigate the human impact of data literacy in the latest episode of Data Brilliant. Many people know and understand how data touches our lives every single day, from the TV shows that are recommended to us on streaming platforms based on our viewer history, to getting real time traffic updates via Google Maps as we have our way from A to B. Data undoubtedly plays an integral role in all of our lives.
     
    This is why, as Joe and Kirk discuss throughout the episode, the need to read, work with and understand data goes beyond data scientists and is crucial for all members of society, but unfortunately many still lack the data literacy skills that could help them in the digital revolution we find ourselves in today.
     
    Ultimately, enabling people across all parts of society are data literate not only benefits the health of individuals and organizations, but entire economies.

    Why data and data literacy should be put on school curriculums

    In this episode, Data Brilliant explores why teaching data literacy skills from a young age is essential for preparing people for both their personal and work lives with special guest, Tom Vander Ark, CEO of Getting Smart and contributor to Forbes.
    As learning around the world has moved online over the past few months, has this brought to the fore different and new skillsets needed? Tom and Qlik’s Chief Data Officer, Joe DosSantos will discuss the vital role of technology within the education system today.
    Whilst many would assume that younger generations are “digital natives” who instinctively understand technology, Tom and Joe argue that being able to understand data and turn it into usable information, requires collaboration, creativity, awareness, and critical thinking – not just an awareness of new technology. And they talk to how younger generations should be picking up and learning in a variety of different environments, not just the school system.
