Acquire, store and validate different types of data, and use a range of software to interpret and visualise data to create information

Elaborations

  • using digital systems to validate data, for example setting data types in a spreadsheet to make sure a date is input correctly (Skills: Literacy, Numeracy, Information and Communication Technology (ICT) Capability, Critical and Creative Thinking)
  • selecting and using peripheral devices suitable to the data, for example using a data probe to collect data about changing soil temperatures for plants, interpreting the data and sharing the results as a digital graph (Skills: Literacy, Numeracy, Information and Communication Technology (ICT) Capability, Critical and Creative Thinking)
  • recognising the difference between numerical, text and date formats in spreadsheets (Skills: Literacy, Numeracy, Information and Communication Technology (ICT) Capability)
  • using software to automate calculations to help with interpreting data, for example using functions to make arithmetic calculations using multiple cells and summing cell ranges (Skills: Numeracy, Information and Communication Technology (ICT) Capability, Critical and Creative Thinking)
  • acquiring data from online sources by narrowing the focus, for example filtering data using provided options or performing queries using advanced search functions (Skills: Literacy, Numeracy, Information and Communication Technology (ICT) Capability, Critical and Creative Thinking)
  • using data visualisation software to help in interpreting trends, for example uploading data to a web application and building a visualisation of the dataset (Skills: Literacy, Numeracy, Information and Communication Technology (ICT) Capability, Critical and Creative Thinking)
