We are in a data and information rich epoch, yet the sheer amount of information can be both overwhelming and difficult to verify. Information visualization provides a path to better understand unique characteristics within large data sets, as well as communicate complex scientific phenomena such as the impact of global warming.
This English language course will explore and create solutions toward a Sustainable Future for cities here and around the world. Our local focus will be Atlanta, where we hear speakers, read about, and visit examples of sustainable solutions in food and energy. Then, we will work in teams to teach and demonstrate an example of sustainability to the ones most likely to carry it out: kids. We will incorporate their perspectives in our activities. Throughout, students will reflect in writing and speaking and receive support to improve academic and professional English fluency.
