For years I have used a free and amazing tool with Google Analytics to track web statistics on several websites I manage and own. This tool provides anyone with opportunities to discover, research, and analyze real-time internet traffic data.
Why is this important in education?
Making a realistic connection with careers that involve analytics such as web design, mobile development, marketing, business analysis, systems engineering, quality assurance, networking, etc. the more meaningful, engaging, and future prepared our students will be.
How can I use real application of Analytics in my classroom?
Two ways you can incorporate this is through tracking a class blog or website data using Google Analytics or if your students are 13+ you can use Twitter Analytics to track their following insights.
