Explore, play and learn the language of data

Nature, people, objects, we all leave traces. In the digital world, these traces are turned into data. To understand our world and make the right decisions, we need to learn the language of data. As all other languages it can be learned, as long as we get a strong motivation. We believe playing a game that gives you the clue to understand or solve a real-life issue is the right way to start! Welcome to the learning world of Datatrotters!

What they’re saying …

Last August, I played the best board game of my life. I liked it so much because it was brilliantly designed for teaching about how to use economic data to solve a real-world problem. 

The game manages – miraculously, I think – to get players to exercise their analytical skills while being highly entertaining.  It’s very cleverly constructed.

The case study was well made, and applied the theory in an inspiring way.

The content fits well the curriculum, case studies bring a new way of seeing things. I like the way Datatrotters’ charts stress the main learning points.

Good answer review. It explains very well what’s wrong and why, as well as what’s right and why.

From lecturing only, the knowledge retention is pretty low. With this method, I guess we could increase it significantly. Feedback is important. Students love feedback, but today, we don’t have the resources to improve this aspect.
