With the rising demand for data skills across industries and disciplines, and the prevalence of data in all aspects and levels of our lives, it is critical to find new, more effective ways to develop students' data literacies. Stories can be an accessible way for students to personally connect to, and think critically about, data and its implications. But how can data storytelling be effectively implemented into classroom settings, in which instruction is often constrained to focus narrowly on quantitative skills? This interactive poster session showcases eight innovations in data storytelling in the classroom. Together, the contributions consider the various facets and functions of stories for supporting data literacies in contexts that span K-12 to university. By seeking to define the value and roles of storytelling in data literacy learning, this session will inform ways to create more effective and engaging data literacy instruction.
