Big Data in Initial Teacher Education
ENSITE(Environmental Socio-Scientific Issues in Initial Teacher Education) is an Erasmus+ project which intends to make a contribution in the preparation of science and mathematics teachers by developing their competences in dealing with environmental SSI(Socio Scientific Issues) themselves and in acquiring teaching skills to support their students in developing these competencies. This survey is conducted to get insights on current ITE(Initial Teacher Education) and how important is to relate SSI and statistics(Big data) in ITE.
