Tableau is pleased to announce the release of the first module of course work aimed at K-12 education. The module uses NASA data on meteor strikes and helps introduce the concepts of data literacy through the development and creation of visual presentations or stories built upon findings in the data.
  • Ready-made curriculum: launch and learn!
  • Canvas Commons outlines the program with 6-course segments to be used individually or as a complete course
