Education: K-12 Analytics

Schools have a lot if insight hidden in their data —but they don’t have time or resources to use arcane analytics to try and find it. Data needs to be accessible, and easy for everyone. Tableau makes it simple for educators and administrators to ask sophisticated questions, get actionable answers, and share their findings easily online. It’s also a powerful learning tool in the classroom—easy for educators and students to use yet directly applicable in the world of work. Best of all, Tableau is free for active students and instructors.

As data literacy and data skills only become more valuable, educators and students stay ahead of the curve by introducing Tableau early. Plus, the wealth of knowledge and resources for educational uses of data analysis is only expanding.
