This workshop will present how to collect statistical data via the smart phone or computer. The presentation will accommodate either use of the PC or Mac. Presented will be the steps needed to set up teams using the application “Group Me.” A team leader is identified to compile the data. Members then collect data reporting to the leader who records the results on a frequency distribution table. Once data is compiled a meeting via Skype, IM, Wikis, Twitter or f2f to describe and discuss the statistical analysis most appropriate for the research project is then conducted. Data analysis via this venue allows for endless possibilities in relationship to statistical analysis. This technique is across grade levels and multidisciplinary.

Therese_Kanai_64Aloha,
I have been involved in the field of education for over twenty years. Upon graduation from the University of Hawaii in Manoa I moved to Kailua-Kona, Hawaii and was a substitute teacher. It was at that point in time that I decided that working with children was my passion. I attended UH Hilo earning my secondary teaching certification in mathematics and then received my MA in Education from Heritage College. I earned a Ph.D. in Education from Walden University. Most recently I have taken 18 graduate units in Communications.

While working on my degrees I continued to teach taking on responsibilities as head class advisor, started a G/T program, designed a network, graduated from the DOE T3 program, and served as the Mathematics Department Chairperson. l helped to open a new high school serving as the Technology Coordinator and Registrar. I also taught Special Education and was a Title 1 administrator. Currently I teach Online at the post-graduate level and am focusing on teaching and publishing. This is such an exciting field and Online education is the way for the future.
